Default Recipe: Grilled Zucchini Fries (pic & video)

Grilled Zucchini Fries



Bold garlic and onion seasoning pair perfectly with zucchini in a balsamic
vinaigrette to create a great grill-friendly side dish.

Note: You can watch me make this in the video on my blog (link above).

Ingredients
12 Baby zucchini (about 4-5 inches long and an inch in diameter)
1 1/2 Tbsp McCormick Grill Mates® Garlic & Onion Medley Seasoning
1/4 cup Canola oil
1/8 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
Parmesan cheese, to taste

Note: If you can't find baby zucchini use normal sized ones that are
quartered lengthwise.

Method
Wash the zucchini under cold water and drain well.

Trim about 1/8" from the stem of each squash.

Square each zucchini by removing a sliver from each side.

Combine the seasoning, oil, vinegar and pepper in a large zip-top bag.

Seal the bag and shake to combine the marinade ingredients.

Add the zucchini to the bag, seal, and set aside for one to two hours.

Prepare your grill for direct cooking at medium heat (about 350º).

Oil the cooking grate lightly with canola oil.

Remove each zucchini from the bag, shake off the excess marinade, and
lay them on the grill at a 45º angle. Reserve the marinade left in the bag.

Grill each side until they are nicely browned, about 2-3 minutes.

Lightly brush the zucchini with a small amount of the marinade each time
you turn them.

Remove the zucchini to a platter in a single layer and immediately shave
the cheese over them to taste.

Serve and enjoy!

No, let's just say that I am "occasionally and temporarily healthy". The McCormick folks wanted to feature veggies on the grill, and that's a good thing.

Taters, eh? Would sweet potatoes work? I really do need to get some of my potato recipes up there, being in Idaho and all.

Those look great!! Never thought of smoking sweet taters that way! I have them on the halves all the time...
I cut some tater tonite "1/4 in. potato chip shape", Par boiled, cooled, EVOO, Montreal steak seaoning...grilled until crispy! Good stuff, but you gotta eat them right off the grill they get soggy, good but soggy...I got this idea from Jamie... that british dude...
