Gremolata is a Northern Italian garnish from Milan made from lemon peel, garlic and parsley.

It is good sprinkled on braised meats, seafoods, oily fish, or soups. It is particularly known for its use as a garnish with Ossobuco.

A recipe for Gremolata in the Silver Spoon cook book omits the garlic. Marcella Hazan, who most consider the foremost authority on Italian cooking does include garlic . However, she'd prefer you didn't serve Gremolata with her Ossobuco -- she wrote that the flavours in her Ossobuco recipe were already perfectly balanced.

You can swap in mint for the parsley when serving with lamb.

Cooking Tips

2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leafed parsley.
