    Fresh Tomato Salsa Shrimp with Carrot and Squash Noodles

    This Fresh Tomato Salsa Shrimp is the answer to an impressive meal with minimal effort. It’s colorful, fresh, and light! The shrimp salsa topping uses pre-cooked shrimp, which are quickly marinated in the fridge. While the shrimp marinate, you’ll prepare the squash noodles.

    A spiralizer will make for quick work, but you can also use a vegetable peeler and cut the pieces into spaghetti-like strips. Either way you make them, they’re a great way to add veggies to your diet and they cook in mere minutes.

    For a super time-saving shortcut, you could use a good-quality tomato salsa as the base for marinating the shrimp. Just give it a taste, and adjust seasonings as needed (such as lime juice, salt, and pepper). To best mimic the texture, opt for a chunkier salsa — and ideally one that’s sold refrigerated (rather than in a jar).
