Well, would you look at what we have here today. A savory recipe!
My blog posts have definitely been a bit heavy on the sugar these past couple of weeks. But can you blame me? It was my Birthday. Then it was Popsicle Week. And we just HAD to celebrate both of those occasions with something sweet. But don’t worry, I’ve still been enjoying all the wonderful Summer veggies behind the scenes here at Floating Kitchen. And today, I finally get to bring you one of the savory creations that I’ve been cooking up: Grilled Zucchini with Browned Butter Bread Crumbs.
This is a life changing zucchini recipe. It’s one of those fabulously simple recipes that’s greater than the sum of it’s parts. In fact, after I took my first bite, I declared this the best zucchini I had ever made. Seriously, it’s that good.
Zucchini is a Summer staple. And for those you that have it in your garden, you know how quickly it can get out of hand. So I’m always looking for new ways to use it in my kitchen. And while I do love zucchini, I must admit that it doesn’t taste like that much all on it’s own. But that’s exactly what makes it the perfect blank canvas for all sorts of flavor profiles!
In this recipe, the star of the show is the browned butter bread crumbs. OMG you guys. They are amazing. You’re going to want to sprinkle these nutty, crispy bits over every vegetable you make from now on. They make the zucchini feel decadent, instead of like a diet food (which I feel like it’s been excessively branded as since the creation of zoodles).
I like to slice the zucchini into coins before marinating and grilling. But you could do wedges or long strips, if you prefer. The shape doesn’t matter. You just need to get this buttery, cheesy, zingy zucchini into your life ASAP!
