Grilled Zucchini Parmesan

A quick and easy (and tasty) side dish for any grilled entrée from burgers to fresh fish.

What You'll Need:

  • 3 zucchini
  • 3 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Step by Step:

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat; lightly oil the grate.
  • Cut zucchini in half crosswise, then slice each half into 3 slices lengthwise (6 slices per zucchini)
  • Mix 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, on the preheated grill (crosswise to keep them from falling through).
  • Grill the zucchini until the cheese is melted, and the slices are cooked through and show grill marks - about 8 minutes.
