Ingredients

  • 3

    tablespoons butter divided

  • 1

    pound baby zucchini halved lengthwise, and each half cut lengthwise into 3 wedges

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons chopped fresh lemon basil or regular basil

  • Fleur de sel (fine French sea salt)

  • 18

    zucchini squash blossoms (available at farmers' markets and some specialty foods stores)

Directions

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in heavy large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini; sauté until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in basil. Season with fleur de sel. Transfer to plate. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in skillet. Add squash blossoms and cook until barely wilted and still bright orange, about 2 seconds per side. Arrange atop zucchini and serve.
