  • 3 small or 1 large zucchini
  • 1 navel orange juiced – about half a cup
  • ¼ tsp honey
  • Salt to taste


  • Stir orange juice, honey, and a pinch of salt and reduce over medium-high heat.
  • Continue to stir as juice bubbles. Remove from heat when the juice mixture is about half the volume and thick enough to coat your spoon.
  • Preheat BBQ on high heat.
  • Slice zucchini(s) in lengthwise strips, approximately 1/4-inch thick. Brush 1/3 of the orange glaze on one side of zucchini just before grilling. If the glaze is too thick, mix in enough water that it will easily brush onto the zucchini.
  • Reduce BBQ to medium burner setting.
  • Grill zucchini slices with the glaze-side up until the zucchini starts to soften and the bottom side starts to develop grill marks.
  • Turn zucchini slices, and brush the already-grilled side with another third of the glaze.
  • Remove from BBQ when the second side is grilled. Brush on the remaining orange glaze and top with a light sprinkle of salt.


Tip: be sure that your grill is clean before cooking the zucchinis. I like to use a cut onion rubbed on the grill to help keep food from sticking to the grate
