Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Put zucchini, cut sides up, on a plate and sprinkle lightly with salt. Set aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
Put cilantro in a small bowl with mint, garlic, lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss with fingertips to evenly disperse; set aside.
Pour olive oil in a sauté pan large enough to hold zucchini in a single layer. Pat zucchini dry with paper towels and season lightly with pepper. Heat oil over medium-low. Add zucchini to pan, cut sides down, and cook until they are slightly soft but still hold their shape, as little as 5 minutes, adjusting heat if necessary to maintain a light golden color.
Arrange zucchini on serving plate, browned sides up. Serve warm or at room temperature. Just before serving toss bread crumbs with cilantro-mint mixture and scatter over zucchini. Drizzle with additional extra virgin olive oil, if desired.
