The first time I tasted grilled zucchini
was a the home of Carmine Pallone and Giuseppina "Pina" Cappiello.
Pina grilled the zucchini on the terrace of their home in beautiful Positano.
The zucchini can be served on bruschetta or as a side dish (contorni). Zucchine alla Griglia.
Vinaigrette ¼ cup (60 ml)
extra-virgin olive oil 3 cloves garlic,
minced Finely grated
zest of 1 small lemon Juice of 1 small
lemon Salt and freshly
ground black pepper
vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
½ t (2 ml) red
2 basil leaves,
stacked and thinly sliced (chiffonade)
mandolin, thinly slice the zucchini lengthwise into long ribbons and lay on a
baking sheet (be careful when the zucchini get thin that you don’t slice your
fingers). Alternatively, thinly slice with a sharp knife.
Brush a grill
pan with extra-light olive oil and grill the zucchini slices in batches until
grill marks appear, about 3 minutes on each side.
Place them back
on the baking sheet and when finished grilling, pile onto a platter.
some of the vinaigrette, then sprinkle with red pepper flakes and basil.
