Zucchini skewers are a tasty and very simple idea to prepare for the summer. In a short time you can make nice finger food, to serve as an appetizer or as a second dish. The basic recipe that we present today is a completely vegetarian dish, but of course you can indulge yourself in enriching it as you like.

Preparing them is very simple and fast; it is a smart recipe because you can organize yourself in advance and have the skewers ready for a last minute meal. You won't even need to blanch the zucchini because we will cut them very thin, so quick cooking in the oven will be enough.

Make the skewers of zucchini stuffed with stringy mozzarella, provola or feta. Try the fish version of the zucchini and shrimp skewers, or zucchini and sausage for a decidedly rustic and tasty variant. Sprinkle them with plenty of grated parmesan cheese to gratin them in the oven. So let’s see how to prepare zucchini skewers.

How to prepare zucchini skewers

Wash the zucchini under cold running water. Remove the ends, then cut them into very thin slices for the length (1).

In a bowl, chop the parsley and mix it with the capers, the breadcrumbs and a pinch of salt. Coat the zucchini with the dressing (2).

Cut the feta cheese into cubes and roll a slice of zucchini around each. Skewer three or four zucchini rolls with a wooden toothpick (3).

Arrange all the skewers on a baking tray covered with parchment paper, drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with other breadcrumbs. Bake at 200 degrees C for about 15 minutes.

Preservation

You can preserve the zucchini skewers for a couple of days in the refrigerator closed in an airtight container. Before enjoying them, you can sauté them in the oven or heat them quickly in a pan.
