Instructions
  1. Begin by preparing zucchini.
  2. Rinse zucchini and remove stem. Using spiraling-tool, cut zucchini into spiraled noodles. I used the veggetti-after removing the stem, place the end of zucchini into veggetti. Twist zucchini over a bowl until completely spiraled; repeat. Set bowl of zucchini aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt the butter on medium heat; add oil. Saute garlic in butter-oil mixture for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp and lemon juice to saucepan. Briefly saute shrimp as you slice the cherry tomatoes in halves and finely mince the basil.
  5. Add tomatoes and basil to sauce pan and stir.
  6. Pour all of the previously prepared zucchini, salt, pepper and cayenne into saucepan and incorporate into shrimp, tomatoes, basil and butter mixture.
  7. Cover saucepan and simmer on medium heat until zucchini is tender and cooked to your liking (about 5 minutes).
  8. Dice avocado. Remove saucepan from heat. Top Shrimp Scampi with avocado and parmesan cheese and serve.
