Preparation -- 10 minutes

WASH the green and yellow zucchini and mint leaves. USE your mandoline to slice the zucchini into long strips, if you don't have a mandoline use your chef's knife and a cutting board.

SQUEEZE juice from the lime into the small bowl, add freshly ground pepper. PRESS 2 garlic cloves and mix them into the lime and olive oil mixture.

PIERCE a green zucchini slice on a wooden skewer, then Serrano ham, then a slice of yellow zucchini, add Serrano ham and finish by piercing a green zucchini slice. REPEAT for the remaining zucchini slices.

Baking the zucchini skewers -- 10 minutes

HEAT up the large skillet, don't add in any oil. COAT each zucchini skewer with the olive oil and lime mixture using the silicone brush, bake for 5 minutes on each side.

If you start to notice that the zucchini is a bit dry, coat it with a little bit more olive oil and lime mixture. TEAR up a few mint leaves, divide over the plate and serve immediately. Enjoy!
