Grilled Zucchini – Grill on Grill Action

So, the grilled zukes you see in my meal plans a lot?  They’re fabulous and easy, and one of our favorites ’round these parts in the summer.

I can’t grow zucchini to save my life, so we buy them from a local fruit stand that buys produce from Eastern Washington on Thursdays, and then sells it Friday-Sunday.  We have been buying “grey squash” from them in lieu of actual zucchini, and it’s so sweet and delicious!

Easy Peasy Grilled Zucchini
-Zucchini (surprised?  We typically do 2-4 for 2 people)
-Drizzle of olive oil
-McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning (we buy this at Costco and it’s awesome.  And MSG free!)

1) Slice the heads and butts off of the squash, and then make slices lengthwise.

2) Throw in to a bowl and drizzle olive oil over the squash.  Sprinkle with the seasoning.  Toss to coat.

Instructions from the grill master Troy from here on out:
3) Oil your hot grill, and slap (he said slapping was the key) the slices on the grill.

Maximize your grill time.  We were also grilling corn for dinner and a flank steak that Troy butterflied and was grilling for salad toppings for the week.

4) Grill for 3 minutes, and then flip.  Grill for another 3 minutes, and serve hot.  In the past, we’ve added a bit of grated mozzarella to them, but I’ve decided I prefer them more plain.

To kill some time while waiting on the zukes to finish, give your 3 year old the camera!

Bon Appetit!

  1. I just have to say: McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning is the best seasoning for everything, ever. I use it on salads and burgers too and it has yet to fail me!

    • My friend Elaina introduced it to us last summer, and I have yet to go back. It’s good on EVERYTHING! We love it on chicken, veggies, and Troy puts a pinch of it in the hamburgers he makes.

  2. I had actually never tried much in terms of zucchinis until this summer, and they turn nice and sweet once grilled. Definitely love it that way.

  3. This is definitely on the menu for this weekend.

  4. Looks delicious! Grilled ANYTHING tastes so good!

  5. Costco has a seasoning. It’s Johnny’s something…My parents have used it on potatoes that were sliced and grilled. They said they were AMAZING. Haven’t tried it yet. May have to try this though. I usually just slice my zucchini and freeze them. Ü

  6. my dad halves the zucchini & scores it across the top then grills it & tops it with fresh homemade salsa- delish!!! & have you ever had zucchini crab cakes? Another tasty way of the million and one ways to cook it!
