Gremolata or gremolada is a chopped herb condiment typically made of lemon zest, garlic, and parsley. It is a traditional accompaniment to the Milanese braised veal shank dish ossobuco alla milanese.[1]


Gremolata always includes grated lemon peel, but beyond that there is considerable variation. Most, but not all recipes include parsley, mint and garlic; and most include anchovies (especially in Milan itself), and possibly rosemary and sage.[2]
