Ingredients

  • 8 extra large shrimp; peeled & deveined
  • 3 large zucchini; spiralized
  • 1/4 cup Alfredo sauce
  • 1 tbs melted butter
  • 1 tbs Mazola Corn Oil
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Cedar plank - soaked in water for two hours before cooking
  • 4 wood skewers - soaked in water for 30 minutes before cooking

Instructions

Zoodles

  • Spiralize your zucchini into a colander; salt liberally and set aside for 20 minutes
  • Rinse salt off zucchini, pat dry with paper towel
  • Preheat cast iron skillet on grill and coat with Mazola Corn Oil
  • Cook zoodles in your cast iron skillet, tossing a couple of times, for 10 minutes or until tender; add Alfredo sauce during the last few minutes.

Shrimp

  • In a bowl mix Mazola Corn Oil, butter, garlic, paprika, and salt - add shrimp to bowl and coat them well
  • Double skewer the shrimp into two sets of four
  • Preheat grill to 350 degrees F, place the soaked plank on grill and close the lid; preheat the plank on the grill for 5 minutes, flip the plank and then add the shrimp
  • Cook for 5 minutes or until the flesh is milky white or opaque and firm and the outside of the shrimp is a mild pink. Finished internal temp should be 120 degrees F
  • If you'd like to flip the skewers, you may do so half way through. This can help impart more cedar flavor.
  • Split zoodles into two service, add your shrimp and enjoy!

Notes

Zoodles take 10 minutes to cook, pre-heating the cedar plank takes 5 minutes and cooking the shrimp takes 5 minutes. Begin heating the pre-soaked cedar plank when you start cooking the zucchini zoodles and everything will be done at relatively the same time.
