When I come across something with a funny foreign name, I always do a double take and get curious about it. Does that happen to you? When I see recipes like Peruvian something, tzatziki, pantacee whatever, quinoa, fritata… etc, I always need to know what it is NOW and I want to have it NOW even if I know nothing about it at that moment.
That just goes to show how gullible and impressionable I am when something sounds interesting. Haha! Or consider me adventurous and daring! That’s better.
When I first saw this thing called gremolata, it intrigued me. I mean, with such a fancy name, it MUST be complicated and fancy! I mean I saw it on A Cozy Kitchen. And Michael Ruhlman! And again on Simply Recipes. Then I saw it again on Chocolate & Zucchini. So that meant I have to do it, right?
Did I build up the suspense well? Gremolata is not really that difficult or anything. It’s just a a herby, zesty sprinkle that tops whatever you like to spruce it up and give it the extra zing it needs! Quite potent, quite bright and quite lovely indeed.
This little sprinkle just brightens up a plain roasted veggie and adds a punch with whatever herbs you choose to use!
So next time if you see a dish with a fancy name, don’t turn away. It might be so easy, you’d fall off your chair laughing. 😉
