  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons UCR Fresh Citrus Collection Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • 1 clove of garlic, grated or finely minced
  • zest of 1 lemon, plus
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 
  • two pinches kosher salt
  • two pinches freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 zucchinis, washed, stem trimmed and cut horizontally
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons small basil leaves

Preparation Description

Melt butter with citrus olive oil in a small saucepan. Remove off of the heat and grate in the garlic and lemon zest. Next, squeeze in the juice from half a lemon and measure and add in the Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

Place the zucchini halves onto a rimmed metal sheet pan. Using a paring knife, score x's into the flesh before brushing with the butter mixture.

Preheat your grill to medium. Once hot, place the zucchinis onto the grill grates, cut-side down, close the lid and grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until grill marks form. Turn, brush with the remaining olive oil/butter mixture making sure the garlic, zest and herbs are worked into the score marks. Sprinkle the parmesan over top, cover and grill for 1 to 2 more minutes or until the cheese melts.

Serve immediately with fresh basil leaves scattered overtop.
