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.
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.
