Grilled Zucchini

It’s a slow week. This is one of the quickest, cheapest, simplest, most fool-proof recipes I know. It’s great for vegetarians, it takes about 15 minutes start-to-finish, it’s great for summer, it works for both casual and fancy dinners. Just make it. NOW.



  • Zucchini
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper


  1. Wash your zucchini. Chop the ends off and slice them into fourths, like so:
  2. Put the zucchini on a plate. Liberally season with kosher salt and black pepper. Drizzle in olive oil. Use your hands if necessary to “toss” all ingredients.
  3. Light your grill. Cook the zucchini, turning occasionally. When crispy enough for your liking, serve immediately.
