How to Make Gremolata

I love, love, love Gremolata! So, for that reason, Gremolata is what I'm raving on about today.


Gremolata is an Italian garnish or condiment which, in my opinion, is really at it's best when served with roast chicken. Spoon a huge dollop over hot roasted chicken and the smell is amazing. 

Just imagine, lemon and garlic along with parsley mixing with some of the pan juices from the chicken. A good chunk of bread is vital for dipping and moping!

The other good news is that it's really easy to make.
A good handful of flat leaved parsley - leaves picked and finely chopped
2 fat garlic cloves - finely chopped
the zest of two lemons - finely chopped

Give the lot another good chop then mix together, seasoning with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Now add a little extra virgin olive oil, give it a good squeeze of lemon juice......

Job done; Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!
