Continue to turn and peel away ribbons until you get to the seeds at the core of zucchini. Discard the core. You can also do this on a mandolin, adjusted to a very thin slice.
2. cook the zucchini strips in two batches. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When it is hot, add the zucchini ribbons and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Cook, tossing and stirring the zucchini, for 2 or 3 minutes, until softened and beginning to turn translucent. Adjust salt and add freshly ground pepper to taste, and transfer to a serving dish. Repeat with the remaining olive oil and zucchini. Serve.
