This Zucchini With Shallots is light and delicious. It takes only 15 minutes and would be a great side dish for grilled beef or chicken or for any type of seafood. The bread crumbs added at the end provide excellent texture.

1Rinse the zucchini and pat dry. Trim off the ends, but do not peel them. Cut into ⅛-inch slices.

2Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet and when the oil is hot, add the zucchini. Sauté the zucchini over high heat, shaking the pan and tossing gently. Add salt and pepper, and cook a total of 5 minutes.

3Add the bread crumbs and butter to the pan. When the crumbs start to brown, add the shallots and cook for another minute, tossing. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
