Zucchini with Lime

This is one of my favorite go-to dishes. Just as great grilled or sautéed in some olive oil, nice long strips of zucchini get a kick from the pepper and some lip-smacking zest from the lime juice.

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchinis, cut lengthwise into thin strips (about a centimeter)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

Heat the grill or large sauté pan. Toss the zucchinis with olive oil and pepper.

When cooked through, toss with the fresh lime juice and season with salt. This tastes best when left to marinate in the lime juice for a couple minutes.

Zucchini Shopping Tip

Buy zucchini that is intact and has glossy skin. Avoid zucchini with brown or soft spots.

Zucchini Cooking Tip

Zucchini has a very high water content, lightly salt your zucchini prior to cooking so your dish does not become to watery.
