So, the grilled zukes you see in my meal plans a lot? They’re fabulous and easy, and one of our favorites ’round these parts in the summer.
I can’t grow zucchini to save my life, so we buy them from a local fruit stand that buys produce from Eastern Washington on Thursdays, and then sells it Friday-Sunday. We have been buying “grey squash” from them in lieu of actual zucchini, and it’s so sweet and delicious!
Easy Peasy Grilled Zucchini
-Zucchini (surprised? We typically do 2-4 for 2 people)
-Drizzle of olive oil
-McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning (we buy this at Costco and it’s awesome. And MSG free!)
1) Slice the heads and butts off of the squash, and then make slices lengthwise.
2) Throw in to a bowl and drizzle olive oil over the squash. Sprinkle with the seasoning. Toss to coat.
Instructions from the grill master Troy from here on out:
3) Oil your hot grill, and slap (he said slapping was the key) the slices on the grill.
|Maximize your grill time. We were also grilling corn for dinner and a flank steak that Troy butterflied and was grilling for salad toppings for the week.|
4) Grill for 3 minutes, and then flip. Grill for another 3 minutes, and serve hot. In the past, we’ve added a bit of grated mozzarella to them, but I’ve decided I prefer them more plain.
