Zucchini Carpaccio

  • Author: Liz Sloan
  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 46 Servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale

2 medium zucchini

Salt

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

Freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lemon

2 to 3 tablespoons fruity olive oil

2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts or chopped almonds, and/or chopped fresh herbs

1 teaspoon raw honey, 1 tablespoon raisins or fresh Parmesan shavings (optional)


Instructions

Slice zucchini lengthwise with a mandolin or a wide spiralizer setting as thinly as you can, and sprinkle lightly with salt. Place in a colander or on dish towels for 30 minutes to 1 hour to remove the excess moisture, tossing occasionally.

Dry on paper towels and arrange the zucchini in layers in a shallow serving dish, adding slices of garlic between the layers. Drizzle with lemon juice and marinate, refrigerated, for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour. If you have more than 2 layers, you may need to turn the zucchini upside down every 15 minutes to coat them evenly with the lemon juice.

To serve, arrange a few slices of zucchini on each plate. (Remove and discard garlic slices as you go.) Drizzle with olive oil and top with nuts and/or herbs. If you wish, add a few drops of runny honey, a few raisins or some Parmesan shavings.
