Zucchini Fan (reprised)



Here's a simple idea for jazzing up zucchini– you might call it courgette! The key is to slice the courgette most of the way to the stalk and then press it down quite hard with the flat of your palm so it forms a fan shape.




Then simply season it with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle on paprika and parmesan cheese.  A good drizzle of olive oil and you're ready to go.

Pop it into the oven on a high heat for about 15 to 20 minutes – or, as the cookbooks say, until golden brown.

These tasted just fine but I think that if I had used smaller courgettes the fan would have worked better.

  2. My store has some smaller zucchini in right now. I think they would be perfect for this!

  3. Zucchini (we call them courgettes) in short supply here in England. Most are imported from Spain and Portugal, but this year the harvest has been very poor.

  4. I love the way these look. I bet I could grill them. Our zucchini's are also imported now -- I buy them, but can't wait for the fresh ones from the summer farmers' market.

  6. This looks interesting. I enjoy grilling it outside. You are right you want it a little thin.
