pounds zucchini or eggplant, or a combination, cut into 1-inch cubes
Fine sea salt
fat garlic cloves, finely grated, pressed or minced
tablespoons minced fresh oregano or marjoram
teaspoon red-pepper flakes
cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
Lemon wedges, for serving
Flaky sea salt, for serving
- Heat the grill to high. With a colander set in the sink, lightly sprinkle the eggplant or zucchini with a little salt. Toss well and set aside for 10 minutes.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine garlic, oregano and red-pepper flakes. Whisk in oil. Pat vegetables dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels, and add to the bowl. Gently toss to coat. Let marinate while the grill heats up.
- Thread vegetables onto metal or pre-soaked bamboo skewers (see Tip), keeping the eggplant and zucchini on separate skewers, if using both vegetables. Reserve any leftover marinade at the bottom of bowl.
- When the grill is hot, add the skewers. Cook, rotating them carefully every few minutes, until evenly browned and slightly charred in places, about 7 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Brush with remaining marinade and squeeze a lemon wedge all over. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and serve.
