Sweet and Spicy Grilled Summer Squash

Healthy Fact of the Day

Summer squash, including zucchini and yellow squash, are low in calories and rich in essential nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin A, and potassium. They also contain dietary fiber, which supports digestive health and promotes feelings of fullness. Grilling the squash with a small amount of heart-healthy olive oil and natural sweeteners like honey helps create a nutritious and flavorful side dish.



  • 4 medium summer squash (zucchini and yellow squash), sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish
  • Lime wedges for serving



  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 400°F or 200°C).

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, sriracha sauce, minced garlic, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper to create a marinade.

  3. Place the sliced summer squash in a large bowl and pour the marinade over them, tossing gently to coat evenly.

  4. Arrange the marinated squash slices on the preheated grill, cooking for 3-4 minutes per side, or until they are tender and have nice grill marks.

  5. Remove the grilled summer squash from the heat and transfer them to a serving platter.

  6. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve hot, accompanied by lime wedges for squeezing over the top.

Fire up the grill and let the sweet and spicy flavors of this summer squash dish dance on your tongue, creating a sizzling symphony that’ll have your taste buds singing with joy all season long!
