Mediterranean Food Connection: Zucchini and preserved lemon salad, a recipe by Christophe Certain

Recipe translated from the French and adapted by Jonell Galloway

This recipe is perfect for Ramadan.


Recipe

Ingredients

2 onions, chopped
4 zucchini / courgettes
1 tablespoon of capers in vinegar
1 preserved lemon (see note I posted here a month or so ago about how to make them), chopped into 3 mm / 1/8” cubes
Salt
Pepper
Olive oil or butter

Equipment

Large, deep frying pan

Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil or butter. Sautée onions.
  2. While onions are cooking, wash zucchini / courgettes. Start by cutting off ends, then cut then slice them into medium-thick slices, leaving the skin on.
  3. When onion is translucent, add zucchini / courgettes. Mix well, but gently.
  4. Let this mixture cook over low heat for about 15 minutes, until the water from zucchini / courgette has evaporated. They should remain crunchy, but if you prefer them soft, just cook them a little longer.
  5. Add capers and chopped lemon.
  6. Leave on burner for a few minutes, gently stirring, so that the zucchini / courgette will absorb the lemon flavor.
  7. This dish can be eaten warm with chicken or fish, for example, or cold, as a salad.
