"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

2-3 medium length zucchini 4-5 shallots 4 Tbsp butter Martini and Rossi (or other vermouth)
Thinly slice the shallots and zucchini, frying shallots first until glassy, then adding the zucchini to simmer in a covered pan. When liquid is almost gone, add a shot of Martini and Rossi (or other vermouth; dry sherry can be used to substitute) and let simmer for 5 or more minutes.
Shallots can be substituted with green onions if shallots are not available.
