The perfect light meal, this grilled zucchini is perfected with our Basil & Parm cold pressed Olive Oil. Makes 3-4 Servings.
- 2 ounces Sonoma Gourmet Basil & Parmesan Olive Oil
- 3-4 medium zucchini
- 3-4 large pinches coarse salt
- 1 handful fresh basil
- 1 large lemon
- 2 ounces fresh shaved parmesan cheese
- Rinse zucchini. Slice off both ends and discard. Cut lengthwise into 3-4 slices.
- Lay flat in a dish or on a cutting board, sprinkle both sides generously with salt, and let sit for 15 - 30 minutes. The salt will pull significant moisture from the zucchini, allowing you to get a delicious texture and those beautiful grill marks.
- Prep toppings. Quarter lemon and coarsely chop basil.
- Rinse salt from zucchini and pat dry. Coat evenly with Basil & Parmesan Olive Oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Grill on medium high heat for 3-4 minutes per side, trying not to move zucchini during the cooking process.
- Remove from grill, sprinkle parmesan and basil on top, squeeze half of the lemon over the dish and garnish with the remainder.
