Courgettes alla scapece are prepared by frying the courgettes and then marinating them in vinegar, garlic and mint, a combination that creates a distinctive and rich flavour. As well as being delicious, this preservation technique was used to extend the shelf life of food before the advent of modern refrigeration.
