This 3 ingredient Grilled Sriracha Zucchini is low carb, healthy, super easy, and most importantly DELICIOUS!!! Wow your friends with it at your next cookout or add it to your family’s meal as a side dish. This is a recipe you will be making again and again.
I have done a lot of cheating in my eating lately. It has been catching up with me around the belly… As they say, “Into the lips and on to the hips.” With my age, it is harder and harder to burn off. I know enough about nutrition and exercise to know better. But sometimes you want a slice of French Coconut Pie or spoonful of Bacon Ranch Potato Salad (never, ever really only a spoonful). The problem is lately my “sometimes” have turned into “often.” I was following Julie Child’s mantra, “Everything in moderation including moderation.” But alas, I am back on track, at least for a little while. I am certainly not promising “forever,” because there is a whole world of food out there I must try, but I am focusing on the healthier stuff until my belly rolls at least stop jiggling.
Healthier doesn’t mean we can’t eat good! Oh no! I will never be that person that will eat the strict diet of lean meats and steamed vegetables every day in an assortment of seasonings. No thanks. I will gladly keep my little love handles over that life style. I have to have taste and variety as you can see in my Mussels with Sofrito , Low Carb Moussaka , and Hamburger Soup recipes to name a few.
Recently, I had some friends come over for a cookout and wanted to think up something healthy, but really tasty so I didn’t have to stray off my healthy eating. And BAM! I thought of this brilliant Grilled Sriracha Zucchini recipe. It was WICKED GOOD! And I will be making this very, very often.

You can just slice it the normal way and it will turn out just as tasty, but because I was entertaining, I wanted my zucchini to be more fun. Therefore, I sliced it thin with my De Buyer Swing Mandoline, Red. It is easy to use and cuts perfectly as you can see below. The red version is a little cheaper than the stainless steal version. I did a lot of research before purchasing it because I do a lot of slicing in my kitchen and I didn’t want another gadget I would be unsatisfied with. I am very happy with it.
Next, I threaded the zucchini with Fox Run Bamboo Skewers, Set of 100. You can use the nice medal ones also. I needed a lot to serve at one time, so I used my wooden skewers.
Then you just mix Sriracha and butter together and brush it on the zucchini ribbons.
Grill them until cooked.
They were so good! The Grilled Sriracha Zucchini were gone in minutes with no left overs.
They would make an excellent appetizer also. Win! Win! So go try them, you will love them! I promise.
