Recipe: Grilled Zucchini Fries (pic & video)

Grilled Zucchini Fries



As a Master of Flavor correspondent for Grill Mates® I'm posting a
series of recipes and videos that feature some of the latest flavor
trends, tips and techniques from the Grilling Edition of the annual
McCormick Flavor Forecast.

In this installment I'll show you how to use Grill Mates® Garlic &
Onion Medley Seasoning to take grilled zucchini to an interesting and
delicious new level. The bold garlic and onion pair perfectly with
zucchini in a balsamic vinaigrette to create a great grill-friendly side
dish.

Note: You can watch me make this in the video on my blog (link above).

Ingredients
12 Baby zucchini (about 4-5 inches long and an inch in diameter)
1 1/2 Tbsp McCormick Grill Mates® Garlic & Onion Medley Seasoning
1/4 cup Canola oil
1/8 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
Parmesan cheese, to taste

Note: If you can't find baby zucchini use normal sized ones that are
quartered lengthwise.

Method
Wash the zucchini under cold water and drain well.

Trim about 1/8" from the stem of each squash.

Square each zucchini by removing a sliver from each side.

Combine the seasoning, oil, vinegar and pepper in a large zip-top bag.

Seal the bag and shake to combine the marinade ingredients.

Add the zucchini to the bag, seal, and set aside for one to two hours.

Prepare your grill for direct cooking at medium heat (about 350º).

Oil the cooking grate lightly with canola oil.

Remove each zucchini from the bag, shake off the excess marinade, and
lay them on the grill at a 45º angle. Reserve the marinade left in the bag.

Grill each side until they are nicely browned, about 2-3 minutes.

Lightly brush the zucchini with a small amount of the marinade each time
you turn them.

Remove the zucchini to a platter in a single layer and immediately shave
the cheese over them to taste.

Serve and enjoy!

Uh, why was this moved from the "Grilling" forum? It's a "grilled" vegetable.

Just curious,
John

Because it's a recipe! It's easier to find it later in the recipe section than in the grilling section. Very simple concept.
