  1. Cut zucchinis in half lengthwise & slice into half-moon shape.
  2. Place all ingredients in a wok or large skillet except sesame seeds and sesame oil.
  3. Turn the heat to high heat and stir fry every ingredients for 5 minutes, or until zucchini is cooked but still have bite. It will have some liquid on the bottom, that’s totally fine but don’t over cook them, it will be too mushy.
