Gremolata, also spelled Gremolada, is an Italian garnish made of minced parsley, lemon peel or zest, and garlic. Used originally as a garnish for braised veal shank, or ossobuco alla Milanese, it is also often made with anchovies, especially in Milan. It adds a refreshing and sprightly flavor to this or any other dish.

Executive Chef Robert Ozoonian of Joseph’s Trattoria claims that it is his favorite method for preparing salmon and once you try this easy and tasty method of grilling salmon it will become your favorite way to prepare it as well. One of the most useful tips in this video – grill the flesh side before the skin side of the fillet so that the skin will hold the fillet together.

Chop only the yellow portion of the lemon (no white pith) and the leaf of the parsley (no stems). Add chopped garlic to the salmon along with crushed red pepper to taste.

Serve with roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus. Squeeze fresh lemon before eating.
