Grilled Zucchini with Sea Salt

Although it’s not summer yet, I’ve been waiting to make zucchini for months and just couldn’t wait anymore.  Zucchini is one of those vegetables that I love to make because it’s mild flavor goes well with just about any dish.  I especially love to add zucchini to soups and chilis because it adds bulk and soaks up other flavors so well.  This recipe for Grilled Zucchini with Sea Salt may be simple and nothing new to you but sometimes the simplest recipes are the most popular and most delicious.

Fresh zucchini is tossed with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt, and freshly-ground black pepper before being grilled on a grill pan.  Easy peasy.  Eat this as-is as a side or toss in with a salad, pasta, or brown rice for a light meal.  I’d even consider tossing in a little cayenne pepper or smoked paprika next time I make this.  With simple dishes like this, you can do anything!

The ingredients:

Combine zucchini, olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper in a bowl and toss well to coat.

Arrange zucchini in a single layer in a grill pan heated at medium-high heat.

Grill 4 minutes, turning after 2 minutes or until desired doneness.
