Zucchini Carpaccio

As usual, we ate a lot of good stuff at Menorca. One night I went out with my friend that lives on the island. She's a vegetarian and although I am not, I ate great things in the restaurant of her choice. One of them was carpaccio made of zucchini, with (lots of) olive oil, fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Tonight I made it at home, and although of course it didn't taste as good as on the island (things always seem to taste better in a holiday setting), it was still delicious!

What you need: 
1 zucchini
olive oil
fresh basil
grated Parmesan cheese

What you do:
Cut slices of the zucchini with a cheese slicer and cook them for three minutes Let the slices leak out
Arrange them on a plate
Pour olive oil over it to your own taste
Tear the basil leaves into small pieces and sprinkle them on the zucchini carpaccio
Do the same with the cheese
iBuen provecho!

  1. I used to live in Italy, and we grilled the zucchini there. Try that, even in a toaster oven / grill kind of thing. You'll love it. You can also put them in a pan (with no oil) and flip them over from time to time. Works also. Then, when they are cooked (and dried a bit) add your very best olive oil. Delicious! Works too with eggplant. In fact, I am making the zucchini dish today myself... which is why i thought to share it here.
