You hum it and I'll...

I have found a new thing on the tube that is irritating: Someone listening to their music and occasionally whistling a few bars, all out of tune. Occasionally supplemented by a couple of bars of out of tune humming. Don’t do it. Or I will have to kill you.

Anyway… over the weekend I ate lots of really nice food. For lunch on Sunday G and I had such a good meal, which I would highly recommend. I am not a recipe sharing sort of girl, but I liked this so much that it would be wrong not to pass it on.

Slice up about 500g of courgettes about half a centre long and coat it in a clove of garlic and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
Place in a frying pan and cook.
Put it on a plate and grate some lemon zest on to it, lemon juice and 2 chopped mild green chillies.
Let it cool and marinate for a while. I think we only left it for about 15 minutes.
Drizzle a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over it.
Just before serving scatter some Parmesan on it (cut into small pieces from a block rather than the dried stuff) and about ten grams of fresh mint.
Serve.

We had it with tuna steaks and some noodles. We cooked the noodles and then quickly put it in the frying pan to soak up the remainder of the olive oil and garlic. Worked a treat. It was such a good meal.

Only two days to go and then I am on leave. Not a moment too soon… But it’s September already. How did that happen?

Great recipe, many thanks for sharing :)
Did you have cottonbuds and custard for pudding ? TFx

TF - it is really good. Do give it a go.

Don't pick on me or I'll prod you with a cotton bud - I have a lot going spare.

Sounds nice but I'd have to try it without the courgette in it.

Random Reflections said...

kahless - I see a flaw to this plan... no courgette in a courgette recipe... Hmm...

Cotton bud proding an Olympic sport for 2012. Hmmm....

TF - Why don't you write and suggest that. You've got a few years to draw up the rules and train. You could get the gold medal!

What about a bit of synchronised cotton bud proding. Are you up for it?

TF - only if I won't get hurt. I'm a very delicate little flower.
