One more thing to do with all that zucchini from the garden. This is a quick, good, and easy side dish that can be served with a weeknight family meal as well as a fancy dinner. Goes great with grilled chicken or even a nice snack on its own.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium heat.
  2. Cut each zucchini half lengthwise into 4 pieces.
  3. Season the flour with salt & pepper, then coat with the zucchini with flour.
  4. Sauté zucchini in oil and butter until cooked through but not mushy, turning to brown on all sides (5-10 minutes).
  5. When done, turn heat to low, and add soy sauce and lemon juice.
  6. Serve promptly.

Delicious flavor, although the size of the zucchini pieces was entirely too large for my taste. I cut them smaller and used the juice from 1/2 a fresh lemon instead of 1 T. as called for.

I loved it! Easy and tasty, too. For 4 small zucchinis I used 1 teaspoon flour and I also halfed the soy sauce. The result was a lemony taste side dish, to go along with a burger I had. Now I have one more great side dish for the summer! Thanks for sharing!
