Zucchini Noodles with Roasted Halibut

If you’re constantly topping zucchini noodles with basic marinara, it’s time to get creative.

Zucchini soaks up the flavor of whatever you use to season it, so you can use the noodles to recreate favorite Thai, Mexican, and Indian dishes, too.

Think of zoodles as your base. You can cook them in a sauté pan, in boiling water for one minute, or roast them in the oven on a baking sheet (if that’s easier), and then go from there, mixing and matching your favorite spices, herbs, protein sources, and healthy fats.

Start with this approach, below: Thai flavors and a delicious piece of fish, for the perfect healthy meal.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Zoodles are a nutritious, gluten-free pasta alternative, since zucchini contains plenty of fiber, folate, and vitamin C. (FYI, it’s at its peak during summer!) And serving them with fish means you’re getting plenty of protein and healthy fats, too.
