1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp butter

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

1 clove garlic

Zest of half lemon

  1. Preheat bbq or indoor grill to medium-high.

  2. Brush the zucchini with canola oil on all sides and sprinkle with salt.  Place the zucchini on the grill and cook for 2-3min per side.  The zucchini should be tender crisp.

  3. Place a small skillet over medium heat and add the butter.  Once the butter is melted stir in the bread crumbs and garlic.  Cook for 2-3min, stirring often, until the bread crumbs turn golden brown. Remove the breadcrumbs into a bowl and stir in the lemon zest.

  4. Place the cooked zucchini on a plater and toss with the flavoured breadcrumbs.  Garnish with mint and serve.
