Lemon Garlic Grilled Zucchini

I needed a light side to accompany the rich deliciousness of my porchetta, and preferably a healthy and easy one too. This Lemon Garlic Grilled Zucchini recipe was a perfect fit. It’s healthy, easy, grilled, and has plenty of garlic, all things my husband and I love. Well, I’m more fond of the easy part than he is since I’m doing the cooking, but it’s all good!

The Ingredients

This recipe has something I deeply appreciate: a short list of ingredients. And, bonus, I had several of them on hand. I keep Italian seasoning and garlic powder around for those lazy nights when I just want to make a dish of pasta without chopping anything. Salt, pepper, and olive oil are simply must-haves, and fresh garlic too. That left just the zucchini, garlic, and a lemon for my shopping list. Easy peasy!

The Process

The zucchini needed to marinate for 15 minutes or more, so I prepped it after lunch (that gave it about 2 hours to marinate). It couldn’t have been easier. I added the marinade ingredients to a ramekin and mixed them thoroughly. Then I sliced the zucchini, added it to a ziplock bag, poured in the marinade, and gave it all a good shake.

I grilled the zucchini in a grill pan while the pork roast I was serving it with rested. I had to do it in two batches, so it took a bit longer than the time listed on the recipe. That’s totally on me—it would have been done quicker if I had gone outside to grill. Still, I was pleased with the results and got those nice grill lines. This is how my time was spent:

  • 7 minutes of prep work
  • 16 minutes to cook
  • 23 minutes total (not including time to marinate)

I’m kind of surprised I’m raving about such a simple dish, but I am! This healthy grilled zucchini dish was so fast and easy to make. There aren’t a ton of ingredients or any special equipment needed. I even “grilled” mine indoors on the stove with a grill pan, and pan-frying would probably work almost as well. It did make the cooking time longer, but the results were worth the wait.
