Today's post is brought to you by Nakano Rice Vinegar but all opinions are 100% mine.

With summer in full swing, the farmer's market (or garden) is one of my favorite places to find dinner inspiration. There are so many incredible fresh ingredients available, it's a great place to start building a delicious dish. And since everyone seems to have endless zucchini, I knew I wanted to build a dish around this summer favorite. Then when I saw fresh shrimp, I knew together that would make a perfect quick and healthy summer dish.

The second part of this dish was inspired by one of my favorite ingredients, Nakano Rice Vinegar, specifically the Citrus Seasoned Rice Vinegar, which is one of my favorite vinegars for summer dishes. It's bright, packed with flavor, and the citrus pairs great with summer veggies, fresh salads, and is perfect for seafood. It's also low calorie with only 20 calories per tablespoon, which makes it a great way to add flavor without extra fat and calories. Paired with butter and garlic, the vinegar creates a delicious citrus butter sauce that will quickly become one of your favorite sauces.
