Pesto Shrimp Zoodles Recipe Video

Pesto Shrimp Zoodles make a tasty, light dinner! Avocados form the base for this pesto, which takes on some heat from cayenne pepper and some fabulous flavor from garlic, basil and lime.

2 Avocados

1 Cayenne Pepper (deseeded)

2 Garlic Cloves

1 Lime (juice only)

1 cup Basil leaves

3 Tbsp Olive Oil (extra virgin)

8 oz Shrimp (jumbo, cooked, peeled, tail on)

1 Large Zucchini (spiralized)

½ tsp Red Chili Flakes
