Grilled Zucchini with Mustard-Pine-Nut Butter

  • FAST
  1. 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  3. 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped tarragon
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 1/2 pounds small zucchini or yellow squash, sliced on the diagonal 1/3 inch thick
  7. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  1. In a small skillet, toast the pine nuts over high heat, shaking the pan, about 3 minutes. Transfer the nuts to a cutting board; let cool, then coarsely chop. In a small bowl, mash the butter with the mustard, tarragon and pine nuts and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Brush the zucchini with the oil, season with salt and pepper and grill over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Arrange the zucchini on a platter and top with the pine nut butter.
Make Ahead The recipe can be prepared through Step 1 and refrigerated for up to 4 days.
