I tried a new meal that I want to share with y’all! I’ve really been trying to mix up my regular routine with new recipes and incorporate new vegetables and play with what I already and in my fridge and cupboards. And I really enjoyed this one!

When trying to find new meals I like to pick my protein, and then search the Internet for ideas. When I find one I like, I look up a couple versions of the recipe and sometimes even combine a couple of elements to make it my own.

For this meal, I used the left over wild shrimp I had in my freezer and sautéed them with Cajun, onion, and garlic powder and lemon juice. I don’t have measurements on the powders, I just season to my liking until it tastes just right!

For the zucchini, I found a recipe on @pinterest from @ellie_krieger . The ingredients included cooking spray, 2 medium zucchini (about 1lb), 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan (I used my shredded I had in the fridge), 1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs (I used my panko crumbs I already had), 1/8 tsp salt, freshly ground pepper. And for my personal preference I also added garlic powder to the mix.


1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees F, and coat baking sheet with cooking spray

2. Slice zucchini into 1/4 inch think rounds. In medium bowl, toss zucchini with the oil. In small bowl, combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs, salt, and a few turns of pepper. (I added garlic powder too). Dip each round into the Parmesan mixture, coating evenly on both sides, pressing the coating on to stick, and place in a single layer on the prepared backing sheet

3.Bake zucchini rounds until brown and crisp, 25 to 30 min. Remove with spatula. Serve immediately.
