Are you knee deep in zucchini? Tired of making zucchini bread? Try adding a few Asian spices to your garden zucchini.
To me zucchini or Summer squash only tastes good in the Summer. But when it blooms… it blooms and blooms.
I tend to prepare it Italian style with red onion, garlic and a little bit of tomato paste. This gets tiring, so I traded in my Italian seasoning for some Five Spice Powder and soy sauce.
The result was a big hit with the family. This Spicy Asian Zucchini goes really well with grilled salmon or swordfish. Terrific with Asian style chicken or pork too.
