Lemon Herb Gremolata

7 comments:
Well all-righty then....it's time to get the grill out!  
Here is a great little condiment for roast chicken, fish or grilled veggies 

The ingredients could not be simpler and the prep time is about 10 minutes

here's what you need:

2 lemons
a small bunch of fresh parsley (about 1 cup)
a small handful of fresh basil (about 1/4 cup)
your favorite olive oil
5 cloves of garlic
kosher salt
 a quick note on olive oil:
I have tested and tasted many 
and have finally found a grocery store product I love

California Olive Ranch

The regular Olive Oil is really great and I use regularly for cooking
but for a slightly more peppery rich flavor  or for dipping 
try the 
Millers blend
(first cold press, extra virgin)

Nice price and even nicer taste!
I use the small baby leaves of my basil plants for this...I top the plants when they start to bud and cut off just enough to use in salad or for a condiment like this

 for the parsley...I pull off the nice smaller leaves and discard anything that feels hard or stem like
 you will need a couple of nice big lemons.... a quick note on lemons:

I wash mine in really hot water

The hot water gets them super clean but also opens up the cells of the rind and 
then releases the oils in the lemon skin
 here is my herb pile

(pile:  a unique culinary term known only to me)

finely chop with a sharp knife and add to a small mixing bowl
 use a small grater and zest 
or finely grate the lemons over top
 squeeze in the juice of one lemon


 lightly blend...now on to the garlic

 the garlic needs to be smooshed 
(another gem in my kitchen vocabulary) 
in a mortar 
or really finely minced with a knife
 if you're using a mortar and pestle you will get a much smoother (smooshed) garlic paste...
I add a pinch of salt to help with the blending 

 work the garlic into a smooth paste...you will have about 1 tbl 
 add the garlic to your herbs
 this recipe makes about 1/2 cup of gremolata...
but a little goes a really long way
cover and refrigerate for about 4 hours 

this is a knock off of a really great Italian version and 
this is wonderful with grilled shrimp or even bruschetta and some goat cheese

have a lovely weekend!

  4. Love this! Anything with lemon zest is the best! I'm growing basil and something is nibbling the leaves, do you have any suggestions for pests? Maybe some other plants to plant near them? Thanks Kathy@The Daily Nest
