This Lemon Garlic Grilled Zucchini is a delicious, flavourful and bright spring or summer side dish perfect for grilling season!
What better way to end summer grilling than with this Lemon Garlic Grilled Zucchini? Zucchini is not only one of the best veggies to grill, it’s also one of the best ways to enjoy zucchini, other than delectable zucchini noodles of course. Trust me, you’re going to want to keep this recipe.
Something about the smokiness of the grill and the direct fire heat seems to really bring this veggie alive. The beautifully charred edges and grill marks are my favourite part of grilling this veggie instead of just baking it. Then, of course, comes the lemon garlic marinade. This marinade really takes it over the edge.
The lemon garlic combo becomes extra special since the zucchini slices are actually marinading in it. This was actually an accident! There was no coal so I just put the bowl up while recipe testing. By the time we got coal, the fire lit and ready to grill, it was the next day. I took them out of the fridge and they had an amazing lemon garlic fragrance. It became very clear: these babies were about to light up my world. Every single grilling pun intended.
The subtle punch of flavour is absolutely divine and makes this lemon garlic grilled zucchini one of the best grilling side dishes you can make. I ground some salt, pepper, squeezed some lime over the top, added some fresh parsley and some vegan parmesan cheese. I completely these extra steps as they bring out the flavour even more and take your grilled zucchini to a new level. Here’s to grilling season!

1.This recipe is gluten free and vegan. I recommend serving the zucchini immediately as it will wilt slightly as it cools.
2. HOW TO STORE ZUCCHINI: You can store your zucchini in an airtight container in the fridge. I recommend reheating it in a toasted oven, grill pan or on the grill. The zucchini will last about 2 days cooked in your fridge but tastes best fresh.
