Gremolata, which is also spelled “gremolada,” is a condiment that is traditionally served with Ossobucco, which is an Italian dish of braised veal shank. Gremolata is a chopped herb condiment made of garlic, parsley, and lemon peel. Although it is a common accompaniment to veal, the citrus element in gremolata makes it a wonderful addition to seafood and lamb dishes.
Here is a very simple gremolata recipe:

what you need
1 small bunch of flat-leafed parsley
1 lemon
1 large clove of garlic
cracked Black pepper

what to do
Wash and dry the parsley. Finely chop enough to yield two tablespoons
Mince the garlic.
Grate the peel of the lemon until you have produced one teaspoon of zest.
Mix all of the above in a small bowl and add salt and pepper to taste. Many chefs like to prepare the ingredients together in a mortar and pestle to ensure that the flavors of each ingredient mingle before the gremolata is served.

Sprinkle over your dish prior to serving
