Gremolata is a traditional Italian condiment made from finely minced parsley, garlic and lemon zest. It's a nice way to wake up a heavy, meaty, braised dish, which is why it's usually served with braised veal shanks. But it goes well with fish and seafood dishes, too.

It's always a good idea to use caution whenever you're playing with raw garlic — a little bit goes a long way. Adding a few drops of olive oil can help mellow the garlic to some extent. Other variations include substituting fresh mint for the parsley, or adding a few minced capers. The capers are especially nice if you're serving the gremolata with salmon.

Gremolata is an easy way to add an elegant touch to a dish, and it does double duty as both a condiment and a garnish. Check out this simple gremolata recipe.
