This easy zoodles recipe has a few everyday ingredients that give this dish a nice pop of flavor.

Garlic, sriracha sauce, hoisin sauce, and lime juice make this recipe simple but with a bit of zing.

As always, feel free to adjust sauce ingredients to suit your taste preferences. There’s no right or wrong here.

I threw this dish together quickly with what I had in the fridge, and it worked out just fine. 🙂

How’s your January going? I’ve been pretty good at eating healthy, and that helps me deal with the depressing cold weather. I know, I complain about it every year.

Does anyone actually like January?! I’m always relieved when all the gluttony of Christmas is finished (my poor tummy and waistline can’t handle it anymore), but other than that, it’s not my favorite month. Bring on the spring!

I’m slowly building up a collection of 15 minute spiralizer recipes on my blog, and this is the newest addition. I also have my garlic lime cashew zoodles recipe, a garlic shrimp one, a sweet chili shrimp one, and a teriyaki chicken zoodles recipe.

As you can probably tell, I love my spiralizer, I love fast recipes, I love Asian-inspired recipes, and I’m milking healthy January. 🙂

    I would have liked to try this recipe but I don’t see the nutrition list for carbs.

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi! I just added it for you. This is a very old recipe that I put on my website years before I started to add nutritional info. Keep in mind it’s just an estimate and will vary depending on actual ingredients you use. Hope you enjoy it!

    I discovered this recipe a few months ago. It’s so good! I just adjusted one thing to bring down the spicy-ness just a little. I only use 1 Tbsp of sriracha and bump up the soy sauce to 2 Tbsp. It’s still spicy of course but more of a medium level which I enjoy. My supermarket sells spiralized zucchini which makes this great weeknight meal come together even faster. New follower here. I’m excited to try your other recipes.

      I’m so pleased it’s a hit for you!! 🙂 Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a review, Kristen!

    What is another good hot sauce alternative?

    1. Natasha says:

      Hmm… do you mean a sub for the sriracha that’s not spicy? I’m not really sure what to suggest as it’s quite important to this recipe. You could leave it out and try playing with the other ingredient quantities, but it could throw off the flavors.
