Pan-Fried Zucchini Slices

24 Jul

A plate of pan fried zucchini slices.

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • one large fresh zucchini, sliced into 1/4 inch thick coins. (Since the only ingredient is basically the zucchini, it is best to use a nice fresh farmer’s market zucchini.)
Heat a large pan on high heat. Add in the oil and spread it evenly around the bottom of the pan. Add in the zucchini slices. The oil will help the slices brown rather than burn.  Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes and turn down heat to a medium high if needed. Flip the zucchini slices over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.

Zucchini slices flipped over after cooking for 2 to 3 minutes.

Once the flesh of the zucchini begins to  soften and juices are released, they are done. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper if desired (I usually don’t though). I like cooking zucchini this way sometimes because the edge of the slices remain firm while the inside is soft, hot and juicy.
