Zucchini has never been so full with flavor as with this super quick recipe for marinated zucchini.


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • one tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 large or one small zucchini, washed and halved lengthwise or even split in three slices
  • 1/2 clove garlic (I love more)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • A small handful fresh coriander, sliced (parsley or basil is also very nice)


  1. Work in batches if needed.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoons of coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange the zucchini cut side down in one layer in the hot skillet and grill until browned, about 4 minutes. Use a fork to turn the zucchini over, then cook them until tender, about 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer the zucchini to a plate.
  4. Whisk together the garlic, vinegar, and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the vinaigrette over the zucchini and add the coriander leaves.
  5. Gently toss everything together. Let the zucchini marinate at room temperature for about 1 hour before serving. Or let marinate longer in the refrigerator.
  6. Covered, marinated zucchini will keep for up to a week in the fridge.
  7. Room temperature, or cold both will taste amazing!
