In America, zucchini is incredibly abundant, as anyone with just a small vine in the backyard will attest. In Japan, though, it’s a rare and imported delicacy. Since zucchini is such a versatile vegetable, blending well with all sorts of seasonings, it’s no wonder that many Japanese living in America have been cooking with it. My favorite Japanese-style zucchini dish is this subtly nutty sesame sauté.
