Gremolata is a traditional Italian herb condiment consisting of fresh lemon zest, minced garlic, Italian flat leaf parsley and a hint of mint crushed together with mortar & pestle to release their pungent essential oils. It is the traditional accompaniment to Milanese braised veal shank, known as “Osso Buco”.
It also adds a great flavor to meatballs, drizzled over pasta, roasted vegetables, or use as a marinade for meats and fish. Make salad dressing with it that goes well with arugula and shaved parmesan.
Pairs well with polenta, white wine, risotto, shallots, anchovies, toasted pine nuts, white pizza, parmesan cheese, braised meats, shrimp, and fish.
