How do I prepare the Zucchini Noodles?

I get a lot of questions about how I make zucchini noodles. I use a hand-held spiralizer, since they’re super easy to clean.

Mine has paid for itself time and time again- I’ve made a ton of zoodles over the past two years.

Tips for zucchini noodles (a.k.a. “zoodles”)

First, I wash my zucchini thoroughly and wipe them clean with a paper towel before spiralizing.

The towel gets them much cleaner and removes any excess dirt remaining.

After spiralizing, there’s usually left over moisture on the zoodles. I like to pat them dry before cooking with butter, spices, or sauce. This ensures they soak up flavors instead of making your dish watery.

Best sides to serve with Mediterranean Shrimp & Noodles?

I like to add in some feta cheese, shredded parmesan or pecorino Romano cheese atop my zoodles.

The sauce can be a tad spicy, so you may want to layer on the cheese if you’re sensitive to spicy foods.

A Greek salad is a delicious addition to this shrimp dish.

What can I serve with Mediterranean ‘zoodles’ if I don’t have shrimp on hand?

You can use steak, prawns, extra veggies or chicken with zoodles instead of shrimp.
