These are some fightin’ shrimp: in this dish, the shellfish are given a feisty kick by adding slices of Thai chili. It’s sure to please heat-lovers, although you can always adjust if you prefer to walk on the mild side. Tossed with zucchini, garlic herb butter, Parmesan, and al dente pasta, everything comes together in a savory, spicy, and piping-hot pile of perfection on your plate.

Garlic Herb Butter(ContainsMilk)
Wash and dry all produce. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 10-12 minutes. Carefully scoop out and reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water, then drain.
Meanwhile, halve zucchini lengthwise, then slice into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Thinly slice half the chili (if you like it spicy, feel free to use all). Rinse shrimp, then pat dry with a paper towel, removing as much moisture as you can.
Heat a large drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and chili and cook, tossing occasionally, until zucchini is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
Push zucchini to one side of pan and add another large drizzle of olive oil to center. Add shrimp and cook, tossing occasionally, until pink and just cooked through, 3-4 minutes.
Add pasta, garlic herb butter, half the Parmesan, and ¼ cup pasta cooking water to pan. Season with plenty of salt and pepper. Toss until combined and coated in a loose sauce. TIP: Add remaining ¼ cup pasta cooking water, as needed, if mixture seems dry.
Divide pasta between bowls. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil. TIP: Garnish with additional chili (to taste) for extra heat.
