Have you tried courgetti yet? Or maybe you know them as zoodles (zucchini noodles)? Like Chia Seeds they’re a little smug because they’re enjoying such global acclaim and adoration at the moment – and there’s very good reason. I’m hooked. You have all the fork-twirling satisfaction of spaghetti, all the endless saucy flavour, but none of the heaviness. It’s genius and I can’t get enough of them. One of our favourite ways to enjoy these pretty green tangles are topped with a handsome portion of grilled trout that’s been generously coated in a deliciously sticky sauce of soy, ginger, honey and lime.
I just use a basic spiraliser, it’s shaped a bit like a giant pencil sharpener, and it takes just a few minutes to spin your way through a handful of courgettes. They then need just 1-2 minutes in a large pot of salted boiling water, be very careful not to overcook them as they can become limp and nowhere near as exciting as when they’re still a little crunch and al dente.
