Shrimp Zucchini in Oyster Sauce

Shrimp Zucchini in Oyster Sauce

Zucchini or marrows as they call it here is a dark or light green squash vegetable, usually grown abundantly in summer. I always find huge pile of it in supermarkets here which made me curious of its taste and preparation.

Just recently I’ve discovered zucchini, being  cooked as accompaniment to any meat/seafood products, with other vegetables  or as the main ingredient itself. This  was my first time to incorporate zucchini with shrimp in my cooking  and it turned out to become a savory dish. I did call it Shrimp Zucchini in Oyster Sauce, please find recipe below:
