Instructions

    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.
