Fresh Homemade Gremolata – Recipe 🍋

Gremolata is a versatile Italian condiment made of lemon zest, parsley and garlic!

Gremolata is an Italian condiment made of lemon zest, parsley and garlic. This mixture typically accompanies Ossobuco alla Milanese but can be added to enhance so many dishes! I love to put gremolata on chicken cutlets, grilled fish, steak and even just on toasted bread with olive oil. You can also switch it up a bit and add either anchovies, toasted pine nuts or Pecorino Romano!


  • 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • pinch of salt
  • optional: anchovies (1 filet or 1 tsp anchovy paste), toasted pine nuts (1 tablespoon), Pecorino Romano (1 tablespoon)


  • Zest the entire lemon using a grater over a small bowl. Finely chop garlic and parsley and add to the bowl. Mix in salt and stir to combine. You can add a splash of olive oil if you’d like to make it more of a sauce as well!
