gremolata (for string beans)

5 Jul
Found another recipe on another blog…..
Gremolata is a combination of lemon zest, garlic, parsley, and olive oil. Traditionally an addition to Osso Bucco (braised veal shanks), it is also great as a garnish on grilled or roasted lamb, pork chops, beef, and even roasted potatoes. Gremolata is best made fresh, it doesn’t keep for more than a day, but is also best if it has an hour or so before serving for the flavors to meld. Fortunately it only takes about 5 minutes to make. (Larger image.) Serves 2.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

  • 1 lg. or 2 sm. cloves garlic; crushed
