Shrimp and Basil Oil Zucchini Ribbons Over Jasmine Rice

Hello Fresh knocked it out of the park with its Shrimp and Basil Oil Zucchini Ribbons meal kit! Best meal kit so far, and we've had a lot of them!

I need to start out by squealing with delight over my new knives. Gail bought me a set of colorful knives that I adore! Look at the photo of the purple knife. The BLADES are colored too! Amazing, right? (I have a green one, and a yellow one, and a pink one…and more!)

Ok enough about my fabulous new knives. What about this meal kit? Did we get as excited about it as I did the knives?

Yes, indeed! Hello Fresh knocked this meal kit out of the park! Here are a couple of quotes from Gail about it:

I give this one 6 stars out of 5!


This is my favorite dish EVER.

I completely agree with her. Fantastic!!!

And, even better, it was quick and simple to make with almost no cleanup. Superb!

Now, I think a big part of what made this dish so flavorful was the Basil Oil. I don’t know if I could buy that at the local grocery store or not. If so, I’m getting some! Either way, we’ll be eating this dish a lot!

Glance through the recipe instructions before you begin. Some recipes ask you to chop veggies in the middle of the process, usually while something else is cooking on the stove. I recommend ignoring those instructions. Instead, prep all your veggies before you do anything else. (You can preheat your oven during this time). If you are anything like me, trying to chop vegetables while watching over the cooking process will usually end up with overcooked or burned food, or even knicked fingers.

  1. This looks delicious!!!! Not to mention the PURPLE !!!! You shouldn’t have any trouble finding Basil Oil. If you can’t find it let me know. But I bet Rouse’s has it.
