ABOUT THE SHRIMPS

I always recommend buying wild-caught shrimp. In this recipe, small shrimp work the best because they are roughly the same size as the zucchini pieces, which makes it so easy to serve. If you are using jumbo shrimp, you may want to cut them, or you can leave them as is.

ABOUT THE ROASTED PEPPERS

You’ll need some roasted red peppers for this recipe. You can use store-bought, jarred roasted peppers, or roast the peppers yourself. Both options work well, so the choice is yours.

If you prefer to buy jarred roasted peppers, they are sold in all large grocery stores, usually located in the pickle aisle, or somewhere next to olives. You can also buy roasted peppers on Amazon.
