Gremolata is a traditional Italian herb condiment consisting of fresh lemon zest, minced garlic, Italian flat leaf parsley and a hint of mint. The herbs and citrus zest are typically crushed together in a mortar to release their pungent essential oils. Try finishing your fish with our Milanese Gremolata, an exciting flavor combination, or more traditionally served with Osso Buco, veal and other slow braised dishes to add a zip of flavor. Pairs beautifully with Sicilian Lemon, Jalapeno, Oregano,..
