Recipes with zucchini

Whether served raw with olive oil, grated with fresh herbs, or pan-fried in a pancake - zucchini is a must-have ingredient when it comes to spring cooking.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Grilled cuttlefish, roast zucchini, pickled celery and olives


You'll need

8 cuttlefish, cleaned, tentacles and wings reserved 125 ml (½ cup) extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing and drizzling Juice of 1 lemon 1 garlic clove, finely chopped long red chillies, seeds removed, thinly sliced 3 green zucchini, cut diagonally into wedges ¼ bunch thyme, leaves picked 100 gm black olives, such as Taggiasche, squashed, pitted 1 cup (loosely packed) each flat-leaf parsley and mint ½ preserved lemon, flesh only, thinly sliced   Pickled celery 125 ml (½ cup) white wine vinegar 2 tsp caster sugar 2-3 inner white celery stalks, thinly sliced, leaves reserved

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat a char-grill pan over high heat. Open cuttlefish bodies, score inside in a cross-hatch pattern, cut into thirds, brush with a little olive oil, season to taste and grill until just opaque (30 seconds each side). Cool slightly, then combine in a non-reactive bowl with 100ml olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and one-third of the chilli. Refrigerate to marinate (4 hours-overnight).
  • 02
  • For pickled celery, combine vinegar, sugar and 125ml water in a saucepan, bring to the simmer, transfer to a non-reactive bowl and cool to room temperature. Add celery and set aside to pickle (15 minutes).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Season zucchini to taste and toss in remaining olive oil. Place in a roasting pan, scatter with thyme and roast until golden and tender (20-25 minutes).
  • 04
  • Drain cuttlefish and celery (discard liquid), place on a large plate with olives, herbs, preserved lemon and zucchini. Sprinkle with celery leaves and remaining chilli, drizzle with a little olive oil, season to taste and serve.
This recipe is from the May 2011 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“I love the fact that you can cook cuttlefish on a smoking grill but the flesh remains soft and yielding. I also love the simplicity of this dish and the contrasting textures, colours and flavours.” You’ll need to begin this recipe a day ahead. Andrew Cibej, Vini, Surry Hills, NSW
