    3. Slice the zucchini longways into strips of about 1/4th inch, as shown in the video.
    4. Chop the parsley and garlic and set aside. 
    5. Arrange the strips of zucchini on the preheated cast iron grill and place  it back into the oven. 
    6. Allow the zucchini to grill for about 8 minutes, and then flip the slices. 
    7. Once both sides have good grill marks, remove from the oven.
