First, make sure you slice the zucchini squash to about 1/4-inch thick. This thickness is quick to cook when grilling.
Next, make the lemon butter mixture by combining the butter, lemon juice and chopped parsley.
Brush the lemon butter mixture on both sides of the sliced zucchini. Grill for about 1 minute on each side, or until the char marks form.
