  • 2 zucchinis medium-small sized
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce in the Asian section of most stores
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • Splash of water
  • salt to taste


  • Slice zucchini in half lengthways and slice lengths into 1/4" slices.
  • Turn a large frying pan on medium-high and add oil, zucchini and black pepper.
  • As it cooks give it a stir often enough to prevent burning. As the zucchini starts to brown turn the pan down to medium.
  • Add 1 Tablespoon of hoisin sauce. If things are starting to stick splash in a few Tablespoons of water.
  • Taste the zucchini and see how strong it is. If you want it a little stronger add a bit more hoisin sauce. Taste for salt and add some if desired.
  • Cook until tender to the bite but not mushy.
