Plus: More Grilling Recipes and Tips
Push one 8-inch bamboo skewer horizontally through 2 zucchini slices; keeping another skewer parallel, push it through the slices to secure them. Repeat with the remaining slices to form 6 kebabs. Brush with the olive oil and transfer to a large dish. Sprinkle with the garlic and parsley, season with salt and white pepper and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Light a grill.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a medium skillet. Add the zucchini, garlic and onion and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, transfer to a platter and refrigerate until chilled, about 20 minutes.
Scrape the mixture into a blender, add the basil and the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and blend until smooth. Scrape into a bowl. Stir in the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
Scrape the garlic off the kebabs and grill over a hot fire for about 2 minutes per side, or until lightly charred and just tender. Serve the kebabs with the dip.
