Quick and easy: A spiced olive oil-butter-mix and your oven do the work for you!

This is a convenient little recipe requiring no effort. While everything is sweating in the oven, I am free to deal with other things: pour a glass of wine, chat with invited friends, set the table. Or just hang up the laundry when I'm alone. It is suitable as a dinner for one or two eaters, as well as for guests, it can be multiplied easily. Fish and vegetables should always be prepared in a form with a high rim. Larger quantities would not be adequately moisted in the fat on a baking sheet and would end up dry instead of juicy.
I find the smell of curry powder warmed in melting butter incomparably appetizing. But the recipe is flexible and changeable: If you don't like curry, take your favorite spice instead. Cut the zucchini into not too thin slices because they cook quickly and should still have a little bite. —Margot Henriette
