1. Slice the zucchini on the diagonal so that you have longish oval 
slices about 1/4 inch thick. Slat and place in a colander and let sit 30 
minutes. Rinse
and pat dry.
2. Preheat the broiler and place the zucchini on an oiled baking sheet. 
Brush with the olive oil. Grill about 10 inches from the heat source for 
7 to 12
minutes, until still bright green around the edges and just barely 
beginning to brown on top.
3. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with 
the hot pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Chill until shortly 
before serving.
Just before serving, toss with the lemon juice and sprinkle on the basil.
