Method

  1. Step 1

    Prepare a barbecue for medium-high heat. In a small bowl, whisk 2 tbs of the oil with vinegar, lemon juice and garlic. Season with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, toss the zucchini with 1 tbs of the oil and sprinkle with salt. Barbecue, turning once, for 3 mins each side or until the zucchini is charred and tender. Transfer to a platter and spoon over the dressing. Set aside to marinate at room temperature for 30 mins.
  3. Step 3

    Reheat the barbecue. In a small bowl, toss the tomatoes with the remaining ½ tbs of oil and sprinkle with salt. Lightly brush a barbecue tray or metal wire rack with oil and place on the barbecue grates. Place tomatoes on the wire rack and barbecue for 2 mins or until the tomatoes soften and some begin to burst. Transfer the tomatoes to the platter with the zucchini. Scatter the basil and mint over and serve.
