1 tbsp. kosher salt
2 lbs. firm zucchini, trimmed, peeled,
and cut into 2" x 1⁄4" strips
1 1⁄2 cups heavy cream
3⁄4 cup grated parmesan
3 eggs, beaten
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1. To a 3-quart saucepan, add salt and 6 cups water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add zucchini and boil until just soft, about 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, transfer zucchini to a paper towel–lined sheet tray. Let dry for 2–3 hours at room temperature or in the refrigerator overnight.
2. Heat oven to 450˚. Whisk together heavy cream, parmesan, eggs, and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour cream–egg mixture into a 9" glass pie plate and nestle in zucchini. Bake until golden brown and set, about 40 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
