    Yessir-y. I’m going to Sam’s Club tonight to get the shrimp to make these and we’re having it tomorrow night. I have been thinking about this since I saw it a week ago today.

    I hope you all enjoy!
    Instead of the zucchini I use a cucumber. My kids “think” they don’t like zucchini!

  5. Joy says:

    I just love zucchini.

    That really looks good! My son was kinda a late bloomer when it came to appreciating the taste of good shrimp. Now he loves it!!! We will be making this for sure!

    I will defiantly try this. We all love shrimp. I bet it would be good with chicken or pork as well.
