What is Gremolata?

Gremolata is a sauce or condiment made with Italian parsley, lemon zest and garlic. Usually, a dry condiment that you serve with protein like fish or delicious osso buco. I love it with oil. It keeps it fresher for longer and looks amazing on almost everything!

It is as simple as only a few ingredients to whip together for this super tasty easy gremolata.

Fresh flat leaf Italian parsley (this really is my favourite fresh herb of all time)

Fresh lemon zest and juice, please no lemon juice out of a bottle haha

Olive oil – I use extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil for different gremolata variations.

How To Make It

It is so easy to make the gremolata. It really is just as simple as adding all the ingredients to a food processor and mixing until chopped.

This can easily be done by hand as well. Simply the chop garlic, lemon and parsley.

Add oil if you want to have a chimichurri oil as I have.

If you do make it dry you can sprinkle it over any of your favourite dishes, or make gremolata crumb for a seasoning, keto crumb option, or salad garnish perfect for summer!
