Recipe: ?Cucurbitus Caesaris?

This is so simple but the results are fantastic. It’s just zucchini quickly cooked in a virgin version of the classic cocktail, the Caesar. As with most drinks, I follow the Paul Harrington recipe.

Slice the end bits off a small (but not tiny) zucchini (~6" long, 1.5" diameter), and then cut it into 1/4" slices.

In a sauce or saute pan, put the following ingredients:
4 oz Clamato
dash Worcestershire sauce
pinch of black pepper
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon horseradish (a bit less if you’re wussy)
1/8 teaspoon celery seed

Turn the heat on to medium-high under the pan and add the zucchini.

Stir to coat in sauce & celery seeds.

Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low-medium and cover.

Allow to cook about 3 minutes until zucchini softens just slightly.

Serve (with spoons available to eat the delicious sauce).

[I’m just awaiting confirmation from my Latin consultants regarding the correct form for the name of this recipe]

One thought on “Recipe: ?Cucurbitus Caesaris?”

  1. Yes, indeed, good recipe. I was cautious with the horseradish, but added more at the table when I discovered that the heat was important (our horseradish is somewhat dilute, so the furnace-nose effect isn’t too much of a risk).
