Huge zucchini got marinated

Getting back on track with foodporning as well. My brother brought me an humongous zucchini instead of flowers. It was huge more than 50cm in length. Basically size of my whole thigh to knee and then some. I didn’t know what else to do than marinate the hell out of the...
