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!
