I love the way zucchinis taste when they are grilled and, when in season, they can be cooked in so many ways and be used in so many dishes. One of the most interesting recipes including grilled zucchinis, in my opinion, is grilled garlic Parmesan zucchini. This zucchini taste just fantastic. I really love the way zucchini taste on the grill, they are so tender but they keep all their flavor and taste. The zucchini are covered in a garlic butter and parmesan cheese: a lovely combination that almost everyone will most likely adore. This is a great summer side dish and the Parmesan adds a nice nuttiness, with the garlic giving it just the right kick. Grilled garlic Parmesan zucchini perfectly complements steak, ribs, chicken or fish. By the way, these can be done in the oven under the broiler as well.
INGREDIENTS Original recipe makes 4 servingsChange Servings 3 zucchini 3 tablespoons butter, softened 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat a grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Cut the zucchini in half crosswise, then slice each half into 3 slices lengthwise, making 6 slices per zucchini. Mix the butter, garlic, and parsley in a bowl, and spread the mixture on both sides of each zucchini slice.
Sprinkle one side of each slice with Parmesan cheese, and place the slices, cheese sides up, crosswise on the preheated grill to keep them from falling through. Grill the zucchini until the cheese has melted and the slices are cooked through and show grill marks, about 8 minutes. Serve your grilled garlic Parmesan zucchini immediately.
