Grilled Zucchini with Herb Butter

Do you have an overabundance of zucchini?   

Here is a quick and healthy recipe which I make often.

Grilled zucchini with Herb Butter

2 medium zucchini halved lengthwise.

 Heat a grill pan over medium -high heat.  Coat pan with cooking spray.   Add zucchini and cook 4-5 minutes on each side.

Place 2 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and 2 teaspoons unsalted butter in a microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave at HIGH for 20 seconds or until butter melts.  Stir in 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, kosher salt and black pepper.  

 Drizzle butter mixture evenly over zucchini, top with freshly grated parmesan or romano cheese.



  1. Will we ever learn?....always too much zucchini. I already have 33 cups of grated zucchini in my freezer! This looks different and will try it as I do have fresh herbs to add. Thanks!

  2. LOL I never tire of zucchini. Like Pat, I shred my excess for during the winter and make zucchini quiche, zucchini bread and the list goes on.
