What to do

  • 1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Fry the zucchini for 4–5 minutes, or until soft – if you can get the right high heat to turn your zucchini brown, you will get a deep, sweet flavour.

  • 2. Add the capsicum, then stir and cook for a few minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

  • 3. In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients together. Add the zucchini and capsicum and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fold through and serve.
