- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- Pinch of crushed red pepper
- 2 medium zucchini (1 pound), cut into 1/4-inch rounds
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- Torn basil leaves
- In a large skillet, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook over moderately high heat until the garlic begins to turn golden, about 2 minutes. Add the zucchini and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned at the edges and tender, about 5 minutes. Pick out the garlic clove. Season the zucchini with salt and pepper and toss with basil. Transfer to a bowl and serve.
