Courgettes in “escabache”? Ole …. vamos a cocinar … ..

Come to see me on:

Escabeche “, I really like this word of Spanish origin, meaning ” pickling vinegar .” The zucchini “scapece” then zono fried or roasted zucchini, which are then made to marinate in a sauce of vinegar, salt, garlic (and if roasted) and a drop of oil. Just to let you know it takes half an hour to realize them and 2 minutes to finish them …. !! It ‘a typical summer recipe, since the zucchini is a summer vegetable. Below is a simple recipe to achieve them!

Ingredients for 4 people who appreciate the zucchini scapece:

1) # 5 large zucchini

2) Abundant oil for frying.

3) Vinegar, salt, garlic, and fresh mint leaves.


Rinse the zucchini well (possibly keep them half an hour in cold water, so at least unload water-soluble pesticides).




Cut into double washers (or at least not thin), and let them air dry (or dab with a clean cloth), so during frying washers zucchini absorb less oil; personally, if I have time, I cut the day before so they have all night to dry on their own.

In a pot with a diameter of about 20 cm you heat plenty of oil (of course you can use a shallow pan, and use less oil, but it will take more time to devote to fry, you choose the way to go).


To make sure that the oil is ready for frying, dip a washer, if sfrigolerà …. “Alright”, you can proceed with the inclusion of a nice amount of washers. PS been careful / ia when inserted washers, because it could squirt a little hot oil on the hands.

It will take about 9.8 minutes of frying, then it’s up to you to check the zucchini and keep them longer if you like more “arruscatelle” and “brown”, drain them with a slotted spoon, and let them rest in a bowl.

Upon completion of frying, prepare a gravy of vinegar, salt, garlic and pennyroyal, heats in a saucepan on the stove, for three to four minutes (in this way we make the less intense vinegar). Pour this over zucchini, turn around very well, let cool, and put in the fridge well covered. Let macerate a few hours ” and zucchini scapece está listo, disfruta you comida”.
