  • baby courgettes 8
  • lemons 2, zested and juiced
  • oregano 2 tbsp
  • dried chilli flakes 1 tbsp
  • clear honey 2 tbsp
  • olive oil 4 tbsp
  • black peppercorns ground to make 1 tsp


  • Step 1

    Top and tail the courgettes and cut each into 3 equal pieces and put into a shallow container or baking dish.

  • Step 2

    Mix together the lemon zest and juice, oregano, chilli, honey, oil, black pepper and a good pinch of salt in a bowl. Divide in two then pour 1/2 over the courgettes – keep the rest covered in a dish in the fridge. Gently toss and marinate for at least 3 hours but preferably overnight.

  • Step 3

    Soak wooden skewers in cold water for 30 minutes or use metal skewers. Heat a griddle pan or frying pan over a medium-high heat or cook over indirect heat on a BBQ. Skewer the courgette pieces and cook, turning on all sides until grill marks appear and the courgettes are tender. Serve with the remaining sauce for dipping.
