Its that time again to share another new recipe I tested out. This one is from Martha Stewart. It is quick, easy and doesn’t disappoint! I made a few modifications with two minor changes* for ease and preference! I am sure fresh shrimp would be great but if you are on a time crunch and haven’t found any on sale frozen is a great alternative, just picking up a bag of prepared frozen shrimp on sale and having it in your freezer for a few recipes depending on the amount you use. I also chose to use the shredded Mexican cheese as we usually have it on hand * great for quesadillas, but mostly because Sammie loves the cheddar cheese. It gives it a bit more color on the tortilla verses the image shown here.

     * view results image & time prep/cook notes below recipe

4 burrito-size flour tortillas (8-inch)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (4 ounces) * I used Shredded Mexican Cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
2 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 pound large peeled and deveined shrimp * I used frozen prepared and defrosted per directions on package
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 cup sour cream
3 scallions, thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Place tortillas on two large baking  sheets. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until  cheese is melted and tortillas are crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add  garlic and zucchini; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring  frequently, until zucchini is crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Add shrimp  and cook, stirring frequently, until shrimp are opaque throughout, about  3 minutes. Stir in lime juice. Spoon shrimp mixture over tortillas and  top with sour cream and scallions.

This recipe is quick, easy and tastes amazing. Prep/ to Serve time approx 25-30min. Honestly I can see I can see this as a great spring  / summer dish for serving on the patio. Add a little rice and salad on the side with a pitcher of margaritas and a few friends, well you get the picture! We just had them as is and it was filling and delicious. I’d love to know if this is a dish you would try~
