Method

Use a vegetable peeler to slice the courgettes into wide strips, discarding the central, seedy part. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the lemon zest and garlic, and fry over a medium heat for 1 min. Add the courgette strips and cook, stirring regularly, for a further 1-2 mins until the courgettes are slightly softened. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and toss the basil through.

Brilliant recipe, my husband ate a mountain of this, and went back for seconds.

Maybe I was too heavy-handed, but all I could taste in this dish was lemon, with a slightly unpleasant sourness from the zest. There was no taste from the courgette or even the basil. I halved the recipe for one person so perhaps this affected the balance of flavours.

Delicious and quick! I used more garlic to flavour the olive oil and removed most of it before adding the courgettes. Forgot the basil, but didn't miss it.

I personally prefer lots of chopped mint rather than basil.
