Stuffed Zucchini Boat

One day I didn't know what to make for dinner because we only had rice, ground pork, tomatoes, Zucchini, Shrimp & Mozzarella cheese left. So why not make Stuffed Zucchini boats? For the original recipe they used ground beef, breadcrumbs and beans but I had to substitute my own ingredients. The dish turned out so so great that my husband loved it so much.

Here is the recipe for you to try:
Serving: 2 people

4 medium Zucchini
1/2 lbs ground pork
1/2 lbs shrimp (chopped)
1small onion, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1 can tomatoes paste (6oz)
1 Beefsteak tomato (chopped & removed the seeds)
1 cup of rice (cooked)
1 clove of garlic
Mozzarella cheese
Salt, pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a baking tray with the Olive oil spray (or use parchment paper). Cut the Zucchini in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Bake it for 20mins.

2.  In a bowl, beat the egg then mix together with the cooked rice and chopped tomato.

3.  Heat the oil in the frying pan over medium heat. Cook garlic and onion for 2 - 3 minutes then add meat and continue cooking for 4minutes over high heat, then add shrimp and Zucchini seeds for another 3 minutes. Add tomato paste then the cooked rice and chopped tomato mixture in the pan and continue cooking for 4minutes.  Season with salt & pepper to taste.

4.  Spoon the mixture of meat, shrimp and cooked rice into the Zucchini shells and sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Reduce the heat of the oven to 375F and bake it for 15mins.
