instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the sour cream, the juice of 2 lime wedges, half the cheese, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; season with salt and pepper.

2 Grill the zucchini & serve your dish

Place the quartered zucchini in a bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Grill 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until charred and softened. Serve the grilled zucchini topped with the lime sour cream, remaining cheese, crispy onions, and a pinch of the remaining spice blend (you will have extra). Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
