Zesty Citrus-Grilled Zucchini
This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy garden-fresh zucchini. More of a simple preparation style than a recipe, I suggest making more than you may eat in one sitting. Chilled Zesty Citrus-Grilled Zucchini makes a wonderful addition to green salads, quinoa or rice dishes you would like to embellish.
- 3 or 4 whole organic zucchinis, split lengthwise, each half cut into long triangular strips (see image for example)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. garlic power
Pre-hear your grill to a medium temperature (low flame), ten minutes prior to cooking. Place zucchini strips in a flat-bottomed baking dish with sides to contain liquid. Combine marinade ingredients in a cup or small bowl, then pour over the zucchini and toss to coat. Place zucchini strips on the grill crosswise to rack so they won’t fall in. Cook 3-5 minutes each side until browned but not burnt. Remove from heat after all sides are browned. Serve warm or chilled.
