How to Barbecue or Grill Zucchini / Courgettes / Marrow



Grilling vegetables on the barbecue has become a speciality of mine! Here, in Portugal, the weather is so hot and lovely (meaning that it is not unbearably hot like it is in the Costa del Sol and many other parts of Spain) that we have a weekly barbecue.  And we always add peppers, onions, potato, aubergine, and now courgettes or marrow.  I love grilled veg more than anything else, well, except God, my church, my friends and pastel de natas.
But other than that, it's barbecued zucchini which rocks! Serve it with chicken, ribs, pasta, and a glass of wine!  


I'm such a bbq fan that you need to check out my full, comprehensive guide to barbecuing which includes loads of ideas, tricks and tips here.  Another great idea is to barbecue stuffed peppers and have barbecued bananas for dessert!


Anyway, onwards and upwards...check out my short video which shows the whole barbecuing process of the marrow:-

Ingredients

Either half a large marrow or 6 whole zucchinis 
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Generous helping of freshly ground black pepper



Method

Prepare the outdoor grill to medium to medium-low heat. 

Lop off the tops and bottoms of the zucchini and slice them into quarters, lengthwise.  For marrow, cut a whole marrow in half. If the centre feels soft, you must cut this out, not forgetting to scrape out any extra bits left (see the above video for more info on how to do this).
Place the zucchini or marrow on your barbecue.  
Drizzle olive oil over them. Sprinkle the pepper, and as an optional extra, you could add a dash of garlic salt and Italian Seasoning.
Grill the zucchini/marrow on all both sides until nice and tender, being careful not to burn them. Carefully turn them over a few times.
Remove onto a plate as it gets done. 
As an additional extra, you could drizzle a bit of balsamic vinegar over the marrow/courgettes. I personally did not as we always have homemade barbecue sauce with our barbecue so it isn't necessary. Check out my barbecue sauce recipe here.



All the best, and I hope you try this out! Feel free to subscribe to my youtube channel here and also please visit my Instagram page, my facebook page, my pinterest page and my twitter account.
