This sautéed zucchini is hands down my favorite zucchini side dish! Even my zucchini-hating husband asked for seconds. It cooks up quickly but packs in the flavor.




  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the minced garlic, sautéing briefly for less than a minute, until fragrant and lightly browned. Add the zucchini and stir, cooking for an additional minute.
  2. Drizzle in the sesame oil and coconut aminos, stirring to coat. Sauté for another 5-7, until zucchini is tender. Remove from heat and stir in fish sauce. Serve immediately. Will keep in a covered container in the fridge for 3 days.
