Sauteed Shrimp with Zucchini and Tomatoes Recipe

Fresh, summery and healthy meal! Less than 30 minutes including prep time!






It's defintely zucchini season in Minnesota right now. My one plant, which is gigantic BTW, is averaging at least one a day to be picked. I see alot of new recipes with zucchini on this blog in the near future! I will be trying a variety of ways to serve it, so it's something different all the time. 

This recipe is an instant favorite. I just love the flavor. It's so fresh and bold. The shrimp goes great with the zucchini and tomatoes and it's fairly quick to make from start to finish. My 5 year old daughter Ella even loved it. Her plate was cleared so fast, I couldn't believe she finished it all. You will love this one! We sure did!

  8. Your squash bounty gives me hope! I've been buying zucchini from the farmers market in the hopes that my plants will do something soon. With as cold and rainy a summer as we've had in Alaska though, my hopes are not the highest. Delicious looking recipe - I love shrimp (at least I've had a lot of that this year!) xoxo
