Lemon Pepper Grilled Zucchini

I have become obsessed with spiralizing zucchini this summer.  That is for sure.

I also, however, still love zucchini in a variety of other ways.  So this simple three ingredient zucchini side dish was right up my alley.  (It was also a great way to use some of the huge container of lemon pepper that has been sitting in my pantry for a while now!)

You can use your grill or grill pan for this recipe.  I used my Griddler (surprise, surprise!).  It literally takes no time at all.  Just cut up the zucchini, toss them in a bowl, then grill until they have beautiful grill marks and are tender crisp.

(Ignore the lemon in this picture.  I thought I would squeeze a little lemon juice over the zucchini once I took them off the grill, but after tasting them I decided it wasn’t necessary.  If you want even more lemony flavor, go for it!)

Start with the minimal prep…

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high.
  • Cut 2 zucchini into sticks.
