Grilled Lamb with Lemon-Mint Zucchini

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I adore grilling.  In fact, I’d say that 90% of my meals are done on the grill.  And, why not?  We are so fortunate in Arizona that we can use the barbecue year-round, and considering that it keeps our kitchens from heating up, it’s the smart play.  Besides, I love a bit of a char on anything (meats, shrimp, veggies, peaches, flatbreads, the list goes on and on).

I must say that I rarely cook lamb on anything but the grill.  The smoky flavor and the char (yes, that char) make it the perfect method for bringing out the best in lamb.  Pair it with grilled zucchini and you have a delicious summer dinner.

This meal comes together in a few minutes.  Mix up a marinade for the zucchini using lemon, garlic, olive oil and mint.  Once you’ve grilled the zucchini, marinate it in the lemon mixture while you grill the lamb. Done!
