Padi’s Zucchini stuffed shrimp boats

This is one of our FAVORITE recipes and sooo very healthy!! I always make extra and eat cold/warmed the next day (if it lasts that long !!)

Cut Zucchini’s in half and scoop out the insides leaving the shells. Cook shells in 350* oven for 10-15 mins.

Meantime sauté some Shrimp Meat (*1 Cup, 1-2 minutes), drain and dice or keep whole and set aside. Sauté scooped/diced zucchini, Mushrooms (*1 Cup), Onion (*half onion) and Garlic (*2-3 cloves). Remove and add shrimp, diced fresh Tomato, diced Green Onions and combine it all with 1 beaten Egg or Egg white. Fill shells with mixture, top with fresh grated Parmesan Cheese     ( Sliced mozzarella or goat cheese would be good too). Cook for 20-25 mins. Drizzle fresh Lemon ( a must) and enjoy. *Suggested measures
