  • 4 zucchini halved lengthwise
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • .25 c heavy cream
  • .25 c parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 c mozzarella cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Score zucchini (like you’re dicing an avocado) and scoop out insides to use later. Place zucchini boats in a large baking dish and drizzle all over with oil. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle thyme leaves on top. Bake until tender, about 20 minutes. 
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cook until pink and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and when cool enough to handle, chop into bite-size pieces. Return shrimp to skillet then stir in reserved zucchini, tomatoes, and garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Add cream, Parmesan, and lemon juice, and cook until slightly reduced, 3 minutes. 
  • Fill zucchini boats with shrimp mixture and top with mozzarella. Cook until cheese is bubbly, about 10 minutes more.
