A simple and delicious summer side dish; grilled zucchini done on the BBQ and finished off with herbs and parmesan cheese.

Course Side Dish
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 3 zucchini squash
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp garlic seasoning
  • 1-2 tsp dried italian herbs
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice the zucchini on an angle into 1/4-1/2" thick slices.

  2. Toss the sliced zucchini in olive oil and lightly season with garlic powder.

  3. Heat the grill and then put on low. Put the zucchini on the grill so that the BBQ grates make lines across the slices in one direction. Lower the lid and cook for 2-3 minutes (on low temp).

  4. Turn the zucchini so that the grill marks go in the opposite direction. Lower the BBQ lid again and cook for 2 more minutes.

  5. Flip the zucchini and repeat the process, so that you end up with grill marks criss-crossing on either side and a total cooking time of about 10 minutes.

  6. Place the zucchini on a platter and immediately sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese over it. Season it with salt, pepper, and some dried Italian seasoning to finish. Serve immediately.
