Simply Pan-Seared Zucchini | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free | BoneCoach™ Recipes
TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes
1/2 tsp (2ml) sea salt
1 tbsp avocado oil
1) Cut each zucchini in half lengthwise and score the flesh in a crosshatch pattern so that the salt can penetrate it.
2) Sprinkle salt onto the scored side of the zucchini. Leave the zucchini for 10–15 minutes so that salt has time to draw out moisture.
3) Using a paper towel, pat the zucchini dry. Preheat oven to 450°F. Meanwhile, heat an iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, drizzle with oil and place zucchini flesh side down in a single layer. Cook for 5 minutes then transfer the pan into the preheated oven and cook for another 10 minutes.
4) Transfer onto a serving platter and enjoy! Feel free to garnish with some fresh herbs.
