Method:

  1. Slice the courgettes in half lengthwise.
  2. Mix the oil, lemon juice and zest, chilli flakes, garlic and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add the courgettes and mix to coat evenly. Place in a sealed container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  4. Mix the yoghurt with mint and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
  5. Pre-heat the BBQ grill and char the courgettes on each side until cooked through but still firm.
  6. Serve with minted yoghurt and slivered almonds.

Tips:

  • If spicy food isn’t your thing, you can use ground paprika instead of chilli flakes.
  • Keep some of the chilli flakes, lemon zest and mint aside to garnish the dish after cooking.
