Grilled Home Grown Courgettes

Grilled Home Grown Courgettes

INGREDIENTS (makes 2 portions):

2 courgettes
a sprinkle of parmesan cheese
a sprinkle of celery leaves
a dash of olive oil
salt and black pepper, season to taste
optional: sriracha powder

Quantities depend on taste and also how big the courgettes are. Mine were two large courgettes and I did two batches in the Le Creuset 26cm Square Cast Iron Grill (get from Amazon here). I use this grill because the cast iron heats up and stores more energy allowing me to create those beautiful grill marks.

METHOD:

Step 1:
Wash and dry the courgettes and slice them at an angle.
Add them to a mixing bowl, add olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. If you prefer them a little spicy, add sriracha powder to taste.

Step 2:
Heat up an oiled grill and place the courgettes in.
Let them cook a few minutes, turning them over when you see the griddle marks formed and that they have cooked half way.
Cooking time depends on preference, I don’t like mine too soft.

Step 3:
Remove from the grill and place them on a plate.
Sprinkle chopped celery leaves or preferred herb, and parmesan. I do not buy grated parmesan, I like to buy a block and grate some fresh when I use it.
Add freshly ground pepper to taste and serve.
