Ingredients Needed for Pan Fried Zucchini with Hot Honey and Feta

Zucchini – For this recipe you will need two zucchinis. Wash and remove the ends. Slice them in half and then slice them diagonally to create triangle shaped, bite sized pieces.

Olive Oil – Coat the bottom of your non-stick pan with olive oil. About 2-3 tablespoons will work. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat, but you don’t want it to smoke.

Hot Honey – Drizzle the pan-fried zucchini with hot honey.

Lemon – Squeeze fresh lemon over the zucchini.

Feta – You can use crumbled feta for this recipe.

Dill – Chop up fresh dill for this recipe. Be sure to remove the stems.

Black Pepper – I’d suggest using cracked black pepper for this recipe. A few turns is all you need.
