Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Zucchini/squash fresh off the grill
Sometimes we just want something simple.  This fits that bill.

It's easy, quick and in the middle of a hot summer it doesn't heat up your house. Although if I'm not firing up the grill I can easily do this in a grill pan as well.


2-4 small zucchini or small yellow squash (I generally use half of each for the appearance.)
1-2 tbsp olive oil (just enough to brush both sides of the squash)
1-2 tbsp Mac Brothers Seafood Rub (to taste)


  1. Preheat grill (or grill pan) to medium high
  2. Scrub zucchini/squash thoroughly
  3. Slice lengthwise into approx. 1/4 inch thin slices
  4. Brush sliced squash on both sides with olive oil
  5. Sprinkle both sides liberally with seafood rub
  6. Put on grill and cook for approximately four minutes, until starting to soften.  You should see grill marks starting to appear on the underside of the slices
    Zucchini/squash right after putting on the grill (I sometimes use grill mats as seen in picture)
  7. Flip slices over and grill another few minutes until done (This is subjective.  I like them a bit less done and my wife likes them starting to char a bit.)

  8. Take off grill and enjoy!
