Broiled Zucchini (Izgara Kabak)



Here is another tasty, yet simple to make appetizer/side dish. The zucchinis would taste much better if you throw them on an outdoor grill. Enjoy.


2 lb medium zucchinis
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Remove stem and cut zucchinis in half. Arrange in a large baking pan. Add salt, pepper, paprika and oregano to both sides of the zucchinis. Brush with olive oil on both sides. Heat oven broiler at 500º F. Keep the oven door half open to avoid any fire dangers. Broil each side of the zucchinis for 7-8 minutes until golden brown. Serve as a side dish or an appetizer.

an outdoor grill is the best for this - i also do aubergines in a similar way

It's simple and delicious. I really like grilled zucchini, and I have a huge one right now from my CSA.

Grilled zucchini sounds delicious! I don't think I've ever made them this way.

This is funny:) I was just going to leave your a comment when I received yours on my blog:)

Broiled zucchini is delicious and healthy, plus easy. Yellow squash works great too. Have you tried it grilled?

Farida, yes I have I tried it grilled. It's certainly much better than broiling.
