Sauted Shrimp with Zucchini and Cherry Tomatoes Recipe Tips

Be sure to thaw your frozen shrimp under cool running water. I put my shrimp in a colander in my sink and let the water run over it until the frozen chunk separates. I then shake the colander, tossing the shrimp, and continue to run cool water over the shrimp until they are thawed.

Don’t slice your zucchini too thin. Otherwise, the slices will turn into mush.
