      Wow, Thanks for sharing. Very easy and fulfilling. I also used the Italian bread crumbs only because it is what I had sitting around forever. I used pre-shelled/cooked popcorn shrimp also only because IJ had them already. Turned out great

      This recipe was excellent. The zucchini boats were a hit with my entire family and very easy to prepare. I used Italian bread crumbs instead of plain(too lazy to grocery shop) and they worked well.What a quick and healthy dinner!
