For Mint Pesto:


  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine shrimp, garlic, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Set aside. Place peas out to thaw.
  2. Prepare pesto: In a food processor (I love this one!), combine pesto ingredients. Blend until smooth, streaming in water as needed to reach a paste-like consistency.
  3. Spiralize zucchini and set aside.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, pour in shrimp with marinade. Cook until shrimp is pink, about 2 minutes per side. Add peas and zucchini to skillet and continue to cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove skillet from heat and stir in pesto. Serve immediately.
  6. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
