Favorite Recipe #9 Barbecues Zucchini

27 05 2011

During the barbecuing months we barbecue zucchini almost every time we barbecue. Who am I kidding, we have been known to barbecue zucchini in the dead of winter in the snow!

Growing up my dad always planted a garden. Zucchini was one of the vegetables grown and we always had so much zucchini that it was all we ate for the entire summer.  I was not such a fan of it except for when it is cooked two ways deep fried and barbecued.  Now lets be honest while deep frying zucchini is amazing it is not the healthiest and it is a whole lot harder than barbecuing.

Buttered Zuccuni

All you do is cut the zucchini in half length wise and pierce it with a fork. Then spread some butter on it.

Seasoned Zuccuni

Then sprinkle it with your favorite seasoning. Ours is Pappy’s Choice Seasoning which comes from our home in Fresno, California. We love it so much we get enough when we go home so that it will last us until our next trip. You can put it on anything hamburgers, chicken, seafood, and vegetables.

Grilling Zuccuni

Next throw it on the grill butter side up so that the butter has a chance to melt.  Once you get grill marks flip it to the other side.  Cook until they are tender approximately 10 to 15 minutes depending on how large your zucchini are.
