Yield: 4 servings
|1 tablespoon||Olive oil|
|1 clove||Garlic; crushed|
|1 teaspoon||Lemon zest; grated|
|4 mediums||Zucchini; halved lengthwise|
|Salt & black pepper to taste|
|2 tablespoons||Mint leaves; chopped|
|2 tablespoons||Red onion; finely chopped|
Heat the broiler. Combine the oil, garlic and lemon zest on a large serving platter. Add the zucchini and turn to coat, rubbing the mixture evenly over the zucchini. Place the zucchini, cut side up, on a baking sheet or jellyroll pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Set aside the platter without wiping it clean.
Broil the zucchini close to the heat source, turning as needed, until the zucchini are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the heat of the broiler. Remove from the broiler.
Transfer the zucchini to the platter and arrange, browned side up.
Sprinkle evenly with mint and onion. Serve warm or at room temperature.
