It's not gourmet or anything, but it was quick and easy to make. What I loved is that it was all ingredients I had laying around in my kitchen, and it made for a fast quick lunch I could make my husband. And he approved, told me he would like it again some time!

The idea is good but even onion rings and garlic butter can't save blanched zucchini. But it was a very good try! Certainly looks good and it would make a good quick side dish. The younger the zucchini the better, and I suggest homegrown or organic produce.
