In a food processor, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil with the garlic, lemon juice, camu powder, parsley, mint, red pepper flakes, and ½ teaspoon sea salt. Blend into a sauce, then add the capers and pulse a few times to chop.
Warm the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the zucchini, and sauté until bright green, about 2 minutes.
