What a great dish and so easy, a good way to jazz up the humble courgette, will be on my menu again and goes with anything ideal if you have a vegetarian to cater for at a meal just add extra on for them to have as it is. I did addthe chilli into the griddle pan to cook it off rather than have it raw as I prefer it that way. It that was the only change I made

Quite an interesting combination of flavours! I've never eaten anything like that, but it must be perfect for Sunday afternoon BBQs. Be careful with chillies, though - I didn't have chilli peppers, so added a little bit of chilli oil and god, it was hot!

Due to having contracted 'pine mouth' a couple of times I decided to replace the pine nuts with chopped up sundried tomatoes.
It was DIVINE!

Made this to serve at a bbq and everyone loved it! A nice change from the usual lettuce and tomatoes.
