Have you ever had your zucchini… in noodle form? Have we blown your mind? Rocked your world? Vaguely amused you as you changed tabs to check your email? Well, they're called zoodles, and they can't be beaten, for they give you your green vegetables in a way that's exciting and new. Cooked with acidic tomatoes, nutty Parmesan, and pungent garlic, they'll be your new veggie go-to. You may now go back to your emails. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

Before You Cook

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using antibiotic free chicken breasts, pat dry. Cook until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using filets mignon, pat dry. Cook until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Using a peeler, shave zucchini into long, thin ribbons. When you've peeled to seeds, turn zucchini a quarter turn, and peel again. Continue peeling and turning until only seeds remain. Zucchini quantity may vary, but total weight will remain the same. Don't worry; recipe instructions are not impacted.

    Halve lemon lengthwise. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Coarsely chop capers.

    Halve tomatoes. If you receive one whole tomato instead, not to worry; simply core tomato, cut into 1/2" dice, and proceed with recipe instructions.

    Mince garlic.

    Pat salmon dry and season flesh side with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Salmon

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add salmon to hot pan, skin-side up, and sear undisturbed until lightly browned, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer salmon to prepared baking sheet, skin-side down. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Roast in hot oven until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 7-10 minutes.

    While salmon roasts, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to sear salmon to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add tomatoes, garlic, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 cup water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until liquid has reduced by half, 2-3 minutes.

    Add zucchini ribbons and 1/4 tsp. salt. Stir occasionally until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Don't worry if ribbons break while cooking; they'll still be delicious! Remove from burner and stir in half the cheese (reserve remaining for garnish).

    While vegetables cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Make the Lemon Piccata Butter

    Combine capers, softened butter, and 1/2 tsp. lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping salmon with lemon piccata butter and garnishing vegetables with remaining cheese. Squeeze lemon wedges over vegetables to taste. Bon appétit!
