shrimp w/shredded zucchini

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by chia2160

the zucchini makes a perfect "bed" for the shrimp. yellow squash can also be used, or you can use a combo of both. this has true eye appeal

i used 1 lb shrimp and 1 lb bay scallops and doubled the sauce ingredients, except for the parsley. this dish was fantastic. a definite keeper, especially for a low carb diet. i would have loved this over pasta or rice but the sauteed zucchini made me feel full and satisfied.
