• 4 to 6 medium zucchini (a little over 1 kg), trimmed
• ½ teaspoon salt, divided
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
• 1 tablespoon minced garlic
• ⅓ cup dry white wine
• 500g peeled and deveined raw prawns, tails left on if desired
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
• ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
• ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
• Lemon wedges for serving



1) Using a spiraliser turn the zucchini’s into long zucchini noodles. Place the zucchini noodles in a colander and toss with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Let drain for 15 minutes, then gently squeeze to remove any excess liquid.
2) Meanwhile, heat butter and 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Carefully add wine and bring to a simmer. Add prawns and cook, stirring, until the prawns are just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add lemon juice, parsley, pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir to combine. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
3) Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and gently toss until hot, about 3 minutes. Pour the shrimp mixture over the zucchini and gently toss to combine. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan and a squeeze of lemon.
