Zucchini are one of my favorite vegetables to grill. Grilling brings out their natural sweetness and adding that squeeze of fresh lemon juice at the end ensures I won’t be able to stop eating these.

  • Preheat your grill to medium heat. Using a knife, cut off the stem ends of the zucchini then slice lengthwise into 1/2” thick strips. I cut my smaller zucchini into three strips while medium zucchini were cut into 4 strips. Keep an even thickness for even cooking times.
  • Set zucchini on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil then sprinkle on the seasonings. Toss the zucchini together with your hands to even coat in oil and seasonings.
  • Set zucchini onto the preheated grill grates, cover, and grill for 2 minutes or until grill marks form. Flip the zucchini over and grill another 2 to 3 minutes, covered, or until you reach your desired doneness. The zucchini should be crisp-tender. Avoid overcooking or they can get mushy.
  • Set zucchini on a serving splatter as it comes off the grill and squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top. Serve with garnished parsley if desired and with additional lemon wedges on the side for those who love a little extra pop of fresh lemon flavor.
