  • 6 Courgettes
  • 80g Watercress
  • Sea Salt
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon

  • 15g Fresh mint leaves
  • 6 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

Accompanied by watercress salad and a chilli-mint dressing. It’s perfect for a balmy summer’s evening!

In the kitchen:
  • Wash the courgettes and watercress. Thinly slice the courgettes lengthways to make flat strips
  • Sprinkle on a few pinches of sea salt. Allow the courgettes to soften slightly as water is extracted by the salt.
  • Now make the dressing. Wash the lemon, chilli and mint leaves. Remove the seeds of the chilli and chop it finely.
  • Shred the leaves. Then whisk the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, chilli and mint in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the watercress in a serving dish.
At the barbecue:
  • Prepare the barbecue for direct heat, approx. 220 ºC.
  • Place the courgette strips on the grate and close the lid. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side until good dark grill marks have formed.
  • Take them off and allow to cool.
  • Place the courgettes on top of the watercress and pour over the dressing.
