Zucchini Boats on the Grill

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by CaribbeanQueen

Fresh zucchini stuffed with your favorite ingredients and finished on the barbecue grill. Great side dish or as a light meal on their own. When I make these I never measure the ingredients, I just make it look "right".

This recipe was so delicious, I'm still thinking about it. My whole family is still raving about it. I doubled everything as there are 4 of us. I used bacon, tomato, black olives, onion, jalapenas and sharp cheddar. Our grill is small and I was grilling pork chops so I cooked these as follows: Boiled as directed for 7 minutes. Cooled, scooped out pulp. Placed on foil lined baking sheet, filled with mixture. Put oven on 450 degrees, baked until starting to sizzle, turned broiler on just a few minutes to braize! Amazing!j You won't be disappointed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the grill for indirect heat.
  2. Place the zucchini in a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook 5 - 10 minutes. Drain, cool, and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the pulp to about 1/4 inch from the skin. Chop pulp.
  3. In a bowl, mix the zucchini pulp with all of the other ingredients.
  4. Stuff the zucchini halves with the pulp mixture.
  5. Seal each zucchini half in aluminum foil. Place the foil packets on the prepared grill over indirect heat. Cook 15 - 25 minutes (depending on the size of your zucchini.).
  6. Use your imagination, you could "clean-out-the-fridge" and make endless combinations of stuffed zucchini!
