Gremolata Recipe

Gremolata is a condiment made from finely minced parsley, garlic and lemon zest. Traditionally served with veal, it is also an excellent accompaniment for fish and seafood dishes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 bunch Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 lemon
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Wash and thoroughly dry the parsley.

  2. Remove the leaves and finely mince until you have about 2 tablespoons worth.

  3. Finely mince the garlic.

  4. Use a lemon zester to remove about 1 teaspoon of lemon zest.

  5. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with Kosher salt and black pepper. You can pound the ingredients together with a mortal and pestle or just use the back of a spoon or the bottom of a glass.
Makes about 3 tablespoons, or enough to garnish 6 servings of fish or veal.
