Step 1Using a small spoon or knife if necessary, remove inside of zucchini halves, leaving a wall around edge. Chop up zucchini insides finely; set aside. Spray hollowed out zucchini halves with cooking spray.
Step 2Place zucchini halves on greased grill over medium heat and grill, turning once for about 5 minutes or until lightly grill marked. Set aside on small baking sheet.
Step 3In a skillet, cook turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder and chopped zucchini over medium high heat, stirring often for about 8 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and liquid evaporates and vegetables start to brown. Remove from heat and stir in salsa and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the breadcrumbs. Fill zucchini boats with turkey mixture.
Step 4In a small bowl, combine remaining breadcrumbs, parsley, if using and oil. Sprinkle over top of each filled zucchini. Place baking sheet on grill; close lid and cook for about 10 minutes or until heated through and zucchini is tender but firm.
