Spicy Grilled Summer Squash with Basil Recipe

by katerina on August 9, 2007

This is a simple as it sounds, I had some beautiful summer squash and what I believe to be a fresh banana pepper from a farm stand. I used a bbq grill pan to hold everything and make my life a little easier. If you don’t have that or a grill wok you can do it all right on the grill, just don’t slice the pepper so small.


[print_this]Spicy Grilled Summer Squash with Basil (serves 4)

2 zucchini, cut into 1/2″ -1/4″ discs
2 summer squash, cut into 1/2″-1/4″ discs
1 fresh hot pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
3T olive oil
1t salt
1/2t pepper
a dozen fresh basil leaves

Preheat a grill to medium. Toss together the squashes, peppers, seasoning and olive oil. Arrange on a grill pan. Grill for about 3 minutes or until lightly charred with a closed lid. Flip and toss around and grill for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Roughly chop the basil and toss with the vegetables, if you like a gentle spice remove the hot peppers they will have still given a bit of kick to the squash.[/print_this]
