This is one of my favorite recipes from Authentic Mexican by Rick and Deann

Quick Zucchini with Toasted Garlic & Lime

1 pound small zucchini ( I use  yellow squash)
1 scant tsp salt or to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable broth
5 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
heaping 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh chopped oregano (1/2 tsp dried)
2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley

1. Put the zucchini in a colander and sprinkle with salt and toss. Let stand
in the sink or over a plate for 30 minutes. Rinse and then dry with paper

2. Heat the broth and saute the garlic until lightly browned. Do Not Burn!
Scoop out the garlic and set aside. 

3. Add squash and saute, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, until
tender, but still srunchy. Remove from heat. 

4. Stir in the garlic and lime; toss thoroughly. Sprinkle with the pepper,
oregano, and parsley. Mix. Taste for salt and serve warm.
