Gimme That Gremolata

October 5, 2012

Gremolata is a quick and easy Italian condiment made with parsley, lemon zest, garlic, and olive oil.  It is traditionally served with a rich flavored entree like Ossobucco (it is also delicious atop braised meats).  The freshness of the gremolata compliments the fattiness in the dish.  You can also mix gremolata with pasta for an instant sauce.



2 tablespoons Lemon Zest
4 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
to taste salt
to taste fresh ground pepper
Zest lemon, careful to avoid too much pith (the white just under the yellow)
Chop garlic and parsley
Combine all ingredients and serve
