Oh no not zucchini!-rec.

We all kind of go by zucchini and ignore it..I like it but there are so many veggies that are so much more beautiful to look and, that have a unique flavor that calls to us..So after making this I have a new respect for the good ol zucchini.
Slice the long way 6-8 zucchini, in a shallow bowl or pan add 1/3 c. evoo juice of one lemon and some of it's zest.Add 2 cloves crushed garlic about 1 teal ground cumin or more if you choose. add some kosher salt and some fresh ground black pepper, I use coarse grind I love that crunch and burst of heat from the larger grind.Put zucchini in the marinade coat well and let it marinate at least 2 hours. Prepare a med fire or use an indoor grilput on the zucchini and leave til you can see a light grill mark thenturn do not let it get mooshie you want it just a little crisp..When done to your liking remove to platter give a light squeeze of lemon and more salt and pepper and enjoy.

Sounds good! I like grilled veggies!

The local oriental buffet place we currently go to makes a garlic butter zucchini. As best I can tell, slivered garlic is lightly sauteed in butter, then the zucchini is added for just a couple of minutes. Cut the zucchi into 3 inch strips.
Lovely stuff. (They add shrimp, but I just get the zucchini.)

On the larger ones, you can cut them into rounds, marinate and grill them like burgers.

Sounds delicious. I'm always glad to see new zucchini (courgettes round my neck of the woods) recipes. Our plants have just started producing. And while I'm glad to see them now, I know I'll be sick of the sight of them in a few weeks...

Thanks for the idea, will play around and see if I can come up with a taste treat.

I'll also take the large ones and grate them with a cheese grater and then add the pile to spagetti sauce or chili. Its a great way for kids to get greens and it makes the sauce and chili heartier.

We love to make fried zucchini rounds from the small ones, and grate the larger ones for zucchini bread and zucchini cake.
I've seen Paula Deen use grated zucchini, onion, egg, flour and breadcrumbs to make zucchini fritters, and those look good, too.

I've also see a recipe somewhere for zucchini stuffing that looked good.
