GREMOLATA

GREMOLATA, lemon, garlic, recipe, herbs, fresh herbs, kitchen garden, cooking, cook, chef, farmhouse at roger's gardens

Ingredients:

1 small bunch of parsley, washed and dried (enough to make 1 cup loosely-packed)
1 clove garlic
2 lemons, washed and dried 

Procedure:

  1. Remove the leaves from the parsley — enough to make 1 cup when very loosely packed.
  2. Chop the parsley with a chef’s knife until it is nearly finely chopped. It should be less than 1/2 cup.
  3. Using a Microplane or fine-toothed grater, grate the garlic clove over the parsley.
  4. Using the same grater (don’t bother to wash it), grate just the zest from the two lemons on top of the garlic.
    •  TIP: Doing the garlic and lemon in this order will help to rid the Microplane of garlic odors!
  5. Continue to chop the parsley, mixing in the garlic and lemon as you go, until the parsley is chopped very fine.
  6. Use the Gremolata right away or store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one day.
