By Team Studio Kitchen

Gremolata, a traditional Italian herb condiment, packs a powerful punch of flavour in a small package. Originally hailing from the Lombardy region of Italy, gremolata was traditionally served with the famous ossobuco alla milanese, a braised veal shank dish.

Used as a garnish or flavour enhancer, gremolata brings a burst of freshness and brightness to a wide range of culinary creations. Whether sprinkled over grilled meats, stirred into risottos, or tossed with roasted vegetables, this versatile condiment elevates dishes with its tangy and herbaceous notes.

Beyond its simplicity, gremolata plays a crucial role in balancing flavors and adding complexity to both traditional and modern recipes. Its versatile nature makes it a staple in kitchens worldwide, offering a quick and easy way to liven up dishes with a touch of Mediterranean flair.

There are various variations of gremolata that can elevate the flavour profile of a dish even further. Some popular additions to traditional gremolata include mint, capers, anchovies, or orange zest.

  • Mint: Adding mint to gremolata can bring a refreshing and herbaceous note, making it perfect for lamb dishes or salads.
  • Capers: Incorporating capers adds a briny and tangy element to gremolata, ideal for pairing with seafood or chicken dishes.
  • Anchovies: The addition of anchovies provides a deep umami flavour that complements beef or pasta dishes beautifully.
  • Orange Zest: Orange zest introduces a hint of citrusy sweetness, balancing out the savoury components of gremolata and enhancing the overall taste of roasted vegetables or grilled meats.
