Makes 4 servings


2 large zucchini
1 pound shrimp, peeled, deveined, tail removed
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped shallot
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
2 tablespoons torn basil leaves,plus more for garnish

Attach fine spiralizing blade and position at end of zucchini. Place medium bowl below blade to catch spiralizeded zucchini. Turn stand mixer to speed 4 and process until blade reaches end of zucchini. Repeat with remaining zucchini pieces. Cut zucchini noodles to desired length.

Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to pan. Add shrimp, shallots, garlic, salt and pepper. Sauté for 1 minute. Remove partially cooked shrimp to a plate, cover to keep warm, set aside. Continue to sauté shallots and garlic for 1 more minute. Add wine to pan and bring to simmer, reducing by half, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add lemon zest, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and cream to pan, bring to simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Heat another large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pan. Add zucchini noodles. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook zucchini noodles while tossing with tongs, 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly softened.

Add shrimp back to the cream sauce and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until cooked through. Stir in parsley and squeeze about 1 teaspoon lemon juice into mixture.
