This baked courgettes recipe is typical of my town and it was (and still is) one of my great-grandmother and mom’s signature dishes. It brings me back to my childhood and to summertime at home in Calabria…?
▪️
INGREDIENTS:
3-4 big courgettes (fresh and in season)
A spoonful of salt
Flour for coating
2 garlic cloves
3-4 bay leaves
A spoonful of sweet paprika
A spoonful of hot paprika
▪️
INSTRUCTIONS:
Cut the courgettes lengthways, remove the flesh and slice the skin (about 5mm thick). In a bowl, mix the sliced courgettes with a spoonful of salt, combine well and leave it to rest for at least 1 hour, but the longer the better as the salt will marinade the courgettes.
Once ready, squeeze the courgettes – bit by bit – with your own hands in order to eliminate any excess water and transfer them into a dish with flour to coat them. Meanwhile, heat the oven at 180°C and grease a baking tray with olive oil. Transfer the flour-coated courgettes into the tray, add the garlic cloves (whole or crushed), bay leaves, season with paprika (lots of paprika!) and sprinkle with some more olive oil.
Bake for about 20 minutes and voilà, dinner is served!
*TCF TOP TIP: don’t throw away the courgettes flesh, use it for another prep ?
