5 people made this

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 3 courgettes
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 40g freshly grated Parmesan cheese

MethodPrep:12min ›Cook:8min ›Ready in:20min

  1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat; lightly oil the grilling grate.
  2. Cut the courgettes in half crosswise, then slice each half into 3 slices lengthwise, making 6 slices per courgette.
  3. Mix the butter, garlic and parsley in a bowl; spread the mixture on both sides of each courgette slice. Sprinkle one side of each slice with Parmesan cheese, and place the slices, cheese side up, crosswise on the preheated barbecue grate to keep them from falling through.
  4. Cook the courgette slices until cooked through, the cheese has melted and the slices are showing some char-grilled marks, about 8 minutes.

Parmesan cheese:

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

This is a great way to grill zucchini. We've always added a little olive oil to the butter, garlic, parsley mixture. I just cut the zucchini in half and lightly score it then rub the butter mixture into it and grill. The grill marks come out nice. After it's off the grill sprinkle with parmesan and let it melt. If you put parmesan on during grilling it gets messy and may burn. If you want to avoid all that just put it all in a foil packet.-11 Aug 2009

This was soooo yummy!!! I cooked in the oven under broil and it turned out great but I had to add a little salt which made it perfect! It was hard to do the butter on the bottom skin side of slices - next time I think I'll just spray my sheet with non-stick and put the butter and cheese on one side. Ty for such a great dish!-16 Aug 2009

These were fantastic! Admittedly, I didn't really measure anything, just eyeballed it, as we are camping and I'm kinda lazy! I mixed everything, brushed it on the zucchini spears, and slapped them on the grill (ok, Mr. LTH did the last part). They were simple & delightful. These will def be on the menu frequently at the LTH house. TY, angie, for an awesome side dish!!! (Photo on the way)-12 Aug 2009

  • 6 courgettes, ends trimmed, cut into long strips
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for dressing
  • 1 fresh red chilli, seeded, finely chopped (or 5 tsp dried chilli flakes)
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • handful fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • handful fresh basil, roughly chopped

Toss the courgette strips in a bowl with the olive oil (just enough to coat the courgette), chilli, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Heat a ridged grill pan until smoking hot and griddle the courgettes in batches, about four minutes per side, being careful not to crowd the grill pan. They should be tender, but with a crunch to them in the middle. If the strips are not quite cooked, leave them on the grill pan for longer, but watch the heat as you don't want them to burn. Don't be tempted to move the courgette while it is cooking or you won't get the chargrill marks across the flesh. Drain on kitchen paper.

Toss the griddled courgettes in the lemon juice, mint, basil and a good slug of your best extra virgin olive oil.

Perfect recipes with globe courgettes

globe courgettes thumb.jpg

Melanie says: ‘Sublimely healthy, courgettes may boost vision and memory, lower blood pressure and fight cancer, so it only seems right to team them with quinoa. Although quinoa looks like a grain, it is, in fact, a protein-rich seed that contains all nine essential amino acids and other nutrients, which make this recipe deliciously virtuous.’

‘A member of the cucurbita (cucumber) family, the courgette is a real kitchen-garden beauty thanks to its diverse range of shapes, colours and sizes. I find it hard to resist globe courgettes, either the ‘brice’ or ‘eight ball’ varieties. They work so well for filling or slicing into rounds and, as there’s a certain amount of uniformity to them, they will all cook in the same time.’

Globe courgettes Provençal

Serves 4
250g quinoa (white, red or black)
6 globe courgettes
2 rashers unsmoked bacon cut into
20ml olive oil
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small aubergine, diced and salted
1 red pepper, diced
100ml white wine
25g Manchego, grated
25g Cheddar, grated
Handful shredded basil and chopped
Sea salt

Cook the quinoa in double its volume of water and simmer for about 20 minutes, by which time, the tiny seeds should be fluffy.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.

Slice the tops off the globe courgettes and scoop out the flesh, reserving it for use later, and stand the courgettes in an ovenproof dish, before preparing the other vegetables.

In a heavy-based pan and over a medium heat, fry the bacon in olive oil and then add the onion, cooking it until it’s translucent, followed by the garlic, courgette flesh, aubergine and red pepper.

Cook for about five minutes, stirring to ensure even cooking.

Add the cooked quinoa to the pan and pour the white wine over it, and continue to cook until it’s absorbed, for about three minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir the grated cheese, herbs and seasoning through the mixture. Spoon it into the globe courgettes and replace the lids. Brush the outside of the courgettes with olive oil and sprinkle them with sea salt and place in the oven for about 30 minutes.

When the sun is out and the barbecue lit, the first thing I want to eat is sardines. The smell of them cooking over coals is fantastic. If you don’t fancy butter, make the same recipe but use olive oil. It will work just as well.

Serves 4
sardines 20, de-scaled, gutted and butterflied
olive oil to drizzle
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
lemons 1-2, cut into wedges, to serve

For the flavoured butter
garlic 8 cloves, skin on
unsalted butter 250g, softened
curly parsley 3 tbsp, chopped
shallots 2, peeled and finely chopped
lemon 1, finely grated zest and juice

To make the butter, heat your oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Lay a piece of foil on your work surface and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt. Place the garlic cloves on the foil and drizzle with oil. Wrap the foil over the garlic and seal to form a parcel. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes depending on the size of the garlic cloves. To check if they are done, open up the parcel and gently give them a squeeze they should be soft. Once cooked, remove from the foil and allow to cool.

Put the butter, chopped parsley, shallots and lemon zest and juice into a bowl and mix well. Squeeze the garlic out of the skins onto a board and chop it through. Add the garlic to the butter and season with salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined. Now either place in the fridge to use later or put to one side while you cook the sardines.

Light your barbecue around 30 minutes before you are planning to start cooking.

To cook the sardines, season them with salt and pepper and brush with a little olive oil. Place skin-side down on the barbecue grid and cook for 3 minutes don’t be tempted to move them now or you may tear the skin (which is protecting the fish). Carefully turn the sardines over and place them on a baking tray. Once you have all the sardines on the tray, place it on the barbecue grid for 1 minute to finish cooking.

Once cooked, remove the sardines from the tray onto a platter so that everyone can help themselves. You can eat the sardines straight away or let them cool and eat them cold. Whichever way you choose, you’ll need to heat the butter until it is hot and melted and pour it over them before serving.

Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing and chunks of bread to mop up the delicious juices.

Eat Seasonably

At the Duke, we buy our ricotta from Alham Wood Farm in Somerset. It’s genuine buffalo ricotta, as they breed their own buffalo. Walnut pesto is a fantastic play on the traditional pine nut and basil pesto and also works wonderfully on spaghetti as a dish on its own. It will keep well in a jar in the fridge for up to a week if well covered by olive oil, so double the quantities for a meal a later.

What you need

  • 300 g ricotta, one piece or multiple smaller ones
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Half mild chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

For the grilled courgettes

  • 4 courgettes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp mint, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 25 g walnuts in shells, shelled and finely chopped
  • 250 g rocket, finely chopped
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 50 g finely grated Parmesan


For the ricotta

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas 6. Put the whole ricotta on a roasting tray, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the chilli and chopped garlic. Place in the oven for about 10 minutes to go light brown.

For the grilled courgettes

Slice the courgettes lengthways as thinly as you can. Put in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, add the mint and season. Mix well to ensure the courgettes are well coated. Grill the courgettes till beginning to brown. (You could eat the courgettes raw if you like, I think they are lovely raw in the beginning of summer.)

Place the courgettes on a plate, crumble over the ricotta and spread the pesto over the top. Enjoy with a few leaves or as a side dish with some barbecued fish or meat.

For the pesto

Put the garlic in a pestle and mortar, grind to a paste, add the walnuts and rocket and grind in, slowly pour in the olive oil grinding the ingredients as you go. Mix in the Parmesan. Transfer to a dish and place in the fridge. You can put all the ingredients in a food processer adding the olive oil as it blends, but the flavours will be better ground by hand.

Best-Ever Grilled Zucchini

Zucchini is one of our favorite vegetables to grill in the summer. Why? It's healthy, it's easy, and it cooks SO FAST. This recipe takes just 10 to 15 minutes from start to finish. Check out our tips below for perfect grilled zucchini every time.

Go For Smaller Zucchinis

The smaller the zucchinis, the smaller the seeds. Big seeds are less than desirable, so try to pick smaller zucchinis when you can. If they're especially small, you can halve them lengthwise. Easy prep, short cook time, and especially flavorful. Major win!

Go Crazy On The Seasonings

Grilled zucchini is a blank canvas&mdashyou don't have to stop at salt and pepper! We're keeping it pure and simple with some crushed red chili flakes and lemon zest, but don't be afraid to get wild with your favorite flavors. Add some crunch with toasted nuts or seeds, load them up with chopped or torn herbs, or add some pops of bright flavor with capers or citrus juice. The more, the merrier! You can also serve it up with a drizzle of dressing, like our homemade ranch or green creamy dressing.

Serve It ASAP

Zucchini tends to get a little mushy as it sits. If you're preparing a big meal on the grill, save the zucchini for last. (Perhaps while your grilled steak is resting.) As soon as it's off the grill, season and serve!

Garlic-Parmesan Wings Are A Must At Every Party

The idea of making chicken wings at home might seem tough&mdashthat crispy skin!&mdashbut we've mastered our method for perfect wings every time.

Bake the wings first with just oil.

If you've never made chicken wings before, this rule might sound odd, but you don't actually bake your wings with the sauce. Chicken wings take about an hour to cook through and get crispy&mdashmost sauces will burn by the time the meat is safe to eat. So we like to toss the wings in oil and season with salt and pepper before baking.

Bake on a wire rack.

Soggy chicken skin = no bueno. Line a large baking sheet (make sure it's rimmed, to contain the fat drippings) with a metal wire rack. (Most cooling racks work, just be sure it's oven-safe.) The wings need the hot air to circulate underneath the skin to ensure crispiness.

Broil if they're not getting golden.

The broiler is your friend with wings if it seems like the skin just doesn't want to crisp up. After baking, heat the broiler and broil for a couple more minutes if necessary.

Then toss with your sauce.

While the wings have a few minutes left of cooking, start your sauce. For these wings, we simply do a melted butter, garlic, parsley, and Parm mixture that you stir together. Once the wings are done cooking, toss them in a large bowl with the sauce and serve.
