MONTHCilantro Lime Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

“The buttery, garlicky, cilantro and lime sauce is absolutely amazing with shrimp; and it’s so quick and easy to make! You can serve this cilantro lime shrimp scampi all by itself, with crusty bread, on rice, on pasta, on quinoa, etc. or my current obsession, zucchini noodles to make for a complete, light summer meal!”
