The key step to take is to wash the shrimp under running water, then detach the heads and shuck them. Remove the intestines inside the shrimp and keep some of the shrimp that you will need to finely chop with a knife for quenelles. Transfer the tartare to a bowl and season with drizzle of evo oil and a pinch of salt. Cover with foil and keep in the refrigerator. Finely chop the zucchini as well and set aside.
Meanwhile, crush the garlic and heat with 2 tbs of evo oil in a nonstick skillet to then hold the pasta with the sauce. Cook the zucchini a few minutes and meanwhile salt the water for the pasta and lower it. After cooking the zucchini, add the shrimp and cook no more than 4-5 minutes, adjust the salt.
Drain the pasta very al dente and add it to the zucchini and shrimp, stirring it for a few minutes.
Plate and use two tablespoons to form quenelles of tartare, then flavor with grated lemon zest and serve.
