Zucchini alla scapece Quick and easy recipe

Zucchini alla scapece : typical Neapolitan dish, it is one of my favorite side dishes, in summer it is the best! The term "scapece" derives from the Spanish escabeche, one of the many terms used in Naples deriving from the Spanish and French domination, the term escabeche, specifically, refers to the process of marinating in vinegar.


  • 3 courgettes
  • vinegar
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • mint


How to make Zucchini alla scapece

Cut the courgettes into 3-4 mm thick slices, put them on a dry cloth and let them dry, it would be preferable to let them dry in the sun for at least an hour so they will not absorb too much oil during cooking.
