- Meal Prep Containers
Step 1: Prepare Zucchini Noodles and Ingredients
Spiralize your zucchini or set aside a package of store-bought spiralized zucchini.
Remove the Trifecta Shrimp from the container and rinse, set aside.
For the garlic use a microplane or grater instead of trying to cut it up with your knife. This is a great trick when a recipe calls for a lot of garlic!
Measure out all of the additional ingredients, feel free to add additional vegetables or more garlic depending on what you like!
Substitute grilled shrimp, poached shrimp, or raw shrimp if you are not using our A La Carte Trifecta Shrimp. Note if you are using raw shrimp this recipe will take a bit longer!
Step 2: Heat Non-Stick Skillet and Saute Ingredients
Heat a non-stick skillet or saute pan over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon avocado oil and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes or until aromatic, add in the Trifecta shrimp and cook for 2 more minutes.
If you are using raw shrimp, cook for 6-8 minutes until opaque and cooked through.
Add in the vinegar and parsley mixture, cook for 30 seconds.
Then add in 2 tablespoons goat cheese (reserve the rest for garnish). Stir in goat cheese to make a tasty garlicky sauce.
Need a dairy free sauce? Substitute ¼ cup of coconut yogurt for a creamy dairy-free garlic sauce.
Step 3: Mix in Noodle and Tomatoes
Add in the tomatoes and zucchini noodles, cook for 1-2 minutes until noodles are coated with the sauce.
