I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles

Lighten up with this low carb dish made in one pan in less than 30 minutes with just enough spicy red pepper flakes and garlic to give it a kick!


1 tsp tahini paste

2 tsps sesame oil

1/4 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced red bell pepper 

2 tbsps minced garlic

1 lb raw shrimp (I used size 36/45)

1 tbsp dry minced onion

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp lemon zest

3 tbsps lemon juice

1/4 cup chicken broth

1 lb zucchini noodles, ready made or make your own

1/4 cup parmesan 


Heat tahini and and sesame oil in a large frying pan to medium high then add the onion and red pepper sautéing for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook about 30 seconds. Add the shrimp, dry minced onion, salt, red pepper flakes and black pepper and cook 3-4 minutes. The shrimp will not be fully cooked at this point. Next add the lemon zest, lemon juice and chicken broth and cook until the shrimp are completely pink, about 3 minutes. Finally add the zucchini noodles and cook about 5 minutes or until they are cooked to your liking. Toss in the parmesan and serve.

Serves 2-3
