Easy Grilled Greek Zucchini
We seriously could not stop eating this Easy Grilled Greek Zucchini, and this might become your favorite low-carb zucchini side dish!
Many years ago I had a Greek friend who taught me to brush zucchini with olive oil, season with Greek Seasoning, and grill it for a simple zucchini side dish. That recipe had been hanging out in the archives for so many years without anyone making it, so when we decided to give it an update we also gave it a makeover in the WOW department! And happily that simple Greek Zucchini recipe morphed into this completely delicious and amazing Easy Grilled Greek Zucchini. If you like Greek flavors and grilled zucchini, I promise that this might become your new favorite way to cook zucchini.
Of course I already have post about How to Grill Zucchini and even a round-up of Low-Carb Grilled Zucchini Recipes, so it’s obvious I’m a grilled zucchini fan. But for this recipe update we grilled the zucchini with a stove-top grill pan, and then we arranged it on a plate and sprinkled with a generous amount of Feta cheese for a new grilled zucchini favorite that I have already made two more times since we first worked on the recipe.
And the true sign of an absolute keeper recipe at my house is that the morning after we had made the Grilled Greek Zucchini you see in these photos I pulled the leftovers out of the fridge and ate them for breakfast! And the reheated zucchini with the slightly-more-melted Feta cheese might have been even better than it was when we made it! PLEASE make this recipe! I promise, you will not regret it!
How to Make Easy Grilled Greek Zucchini
(This is just a summary of the steps in the photos; scroll down for the complete recipe. Use directions for )
- Wash zucchini, trim ends, and cut small zucchini into four lengthwise pieces and larger zucchini into six lengthwise pieces.
- If you have some larger zucchinis with quite a few seeds, you can trim those seeds off like the ones in the front row of the photo.
- Brush zucchini with olive oil and sprinkle generously with Greek Seasoning. (affiliate link)
- Preheat the Stovetop Grill Pan (affiliate link) over medium high heat.
- Lay zucchini crosswise to the grill grates with flat side down and cook about 3 minutes.
- Turn zucchini so the other flat side is down and cook about 3 minutes more.
- Then turn zucchini so the green skin side is down and cook 3-4 minutes more, or until it’s done to the desired tenderness.
- Arrange grilled zucchini on a serving platter and sprinkle with Feta Cheese, and enjoy!
Of course you can cook the zucchini on an outdoor grill if you prefer!
