How To Grill 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, my preferred method is to take a zucchini and slice it into lengthwise sections, no more than a ¼ in thickness.

Rub both sides of the zucchini slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and your choice of fresh herbs.  Grill the zucchini over direct medium heat (350 F) approximately 2 minutes a side, turning once.

Hi Mike I marinate mine for an hour or two in a balsamic vinegar and oil with herb marinade.. Adds a lot of flavor.
