Curried Honey Mustard Marinade with Turmeric for Grilled Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Looking for a marinade that will have your crowd excited about eating zucchini? I'm here to help ya folks:@) I first tried this Curried Honey Mustard Marinade last year as kabobs with chicken and knew it was really special with the squash so I decided to post it as a stand alone side dish for the grill. It's a little sweet, has curry and mustard undertones, the added flavor from a nice smoky grilled char and a very pretty yellow hue. This one's a keeper!
The squash can be sliced into long planks and grilled directly on the grates, cubed and tossed into a grill pan/wok (my preference) or chunked and added to skewers. This recipe is plenty for at least two-three 8" squash and is easily cut in half. I mixed it in a zip top bag and kept turning the bag as it marinated.

Curried Honey Mustard Marinade for Grilling Summer Squash-from A Farmgirl's Dabbles
1/4 C honey
2 Tblsp prepared yellow mustard
1 Tblsp vegetable oil
1 tsp curry powder-I used Jamaican
up to 1/4 tsp turmeric, optional, my addition-I'm adding it to everything I can these days folks
A few hearty grinds of black pepper
zucchini and yellow squash, sliced long ways, cubed or chunked
vegetable oil for grill grates or grill pan
Salt once off the grill
  1. Mix together first six items, add squash and marinate while the grill heats up. If using a grill wok or basket put it on the grill so it gets good and hot.
  2. Oil grates/grill pan/wok and grill veggies to desired level of doneness, I like a little char but for squash to still have some bite, maybe 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt once off the grill.
