2/3 cup fresh parsley, lightly packed
3 tablespoons capers, drained
1 garlic clove, chopped
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
2 zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices
1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, shelled
3/4 pound spaghetti




Put the parsley, capers, garlic, lemon juice, anchovy paste, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper into a food processor or blender. Pulse just to chop, six to eight times. With the machine running, add the 1/2 cup oil in a thin stream to make a coarse puree. Leave this salsa verde in the food processor; if necessary, pulse to re-emulsify just before adding to the pasta.

Light the grill or heat the broiler. Brush the zucchini with 1 tablespoon of the oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Grill or broil the zucchini, turning, until just done, about 10 minutes in all. When the slices are cool enough to handle, cut them crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces and put them in a large bowl.

Thread the shrimp onto skewers. Brush the shrimp with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Grill or broil the shrimp, turning, until just done, about 4 minutes in all. Remove the shrimp from the skewers, slice them in half horizontally, and add them to the zucchini.

Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the spaghetti until just done, about 12 minutes. Drain. Add the pasta to the grilled zucchini and shrimp and toss with the salsa verde.


Wine Recommendation: Sauvignon blanc has a great affinity for the flavors of lemon and mustard. To complement the richness of the pasta and shrimp, go for a vibrant Pouilly-Fumé from France’s Loire Valley. A Sancerre will work almost as well.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
