  1. Soak 6 wooden skewers in water for 15 mins. Heat the barbecue or a griddle pan to high. Meanwhile, cut each courgette half into 3 lengths, then slice each of these lengths in half widthways. Thread alternating pieces of courgette and asparagus onto the skewers to create ‘ladders’.
  2. Brush the ladders with olive oil and cook for 5 mins each side. Remove from the heat. Sprinkle over the lemon zest and some seasoning to serve.
