Gremolata is an Italian condiment-cum-garnish made by finely chopping together lemon zest, raw garlic and parsley. It is spooned on top of a dish before serving to add a zingy and uplifting flavour. The fresh flavours provide a particularly good counterbalance to hefty red meats that have been slow-cooked and braised in a rich sauce, such as the famous Milanese veal shank dish ossobuco alla milanese. However, it will compliment any roast or grilled meats, vegetables, chicken or fish. In my Portuguese Lamb Shank recipe, I spoon it over a mix of roasted carrots, parsnips and cauliflower.
