As ever I didn't try as many Mediterranean recipes as I wanted to, but I did try Zucchini Marinate (Marinaded Courgettes) from Claudia Roden's Mediterranean Cookery which has converted Big Boy from hater to a lover of courgettes.
1 large courgette
1 garlic clove
Juice from half a lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper
Wash and grate the courgette, or better still julienne it with a mandolin (a mandolin has been added to my Christmas list after finding one in the house we rented). Crush the garlic, mix all the ingredients together and season to taste. Marinate as long as you can, ideally overnight so you are left with a pleasant 'hum' of garlic rather than a spiky kick of freshly crushed.
