Grilling Zucchini

How To Grill Zucchini

Grilled Zucchini!  If I had to pick one go-to vegetable for the grill I can never spell right the first time, it would be zucchini.  With minimal prep and a fast grill time, zucchini is a great vegetable for any meal.



My enjoyment of zucchini is strange seeing it is a member of the cucumber and melon family and neither cucumbers or melons rank high on my food “like list.”  Maybe if I grilled the melon...

While there are many different ways to prepare zucchini for the grill, I have a preferred method:

  • First, take a zucchini and slice it into lengthwise sections, no more than a ¼ in thickness.
  • Next, rub both sides of the zucchini slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and your choice of fresh herbs  
  • Lastly, grill the zucchini over direct medium heat (350 F) approximately 2 minutes a side, turning once.

And there you have it! Simple, delicious grilled zucchini that pairs well with any one of our other meat recipes like Smoked Beer Can Chicken or Grilled Kabobs.
