How to get fresh herbs all year round?
Gremolata is a recipe that I discovered not too long ago. I was a skeptic because I am not a big fan of Italian parsley, but I really like fresh herbs. I like them so much that in my house I have 2 farms for Areogarden full of fresh herbs. That way I have fresh herbs all year round. That was the best birthday present I ever got! I am not affiliated with Aerogarden what so ever, so my opinion is real. I have them for more than a year and I really like them. I grow fresh salad in it, herbs and even cherry tomatoes.
How to make a different version of the traditional Gremolata recipe?
Like I said I don’t like Italian parsley, so I had to find another way to make that little recipe that respects the spirit of the recipe, but with herbs that I love! This is the recipe I came up with. I hope you will like it:) Perfect over some nice piece of meat!
Basil - Cilantro Gremolata
- 1 lemon ( zest)
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 1 cup fresh basil
- 1 tsp salt
- Cut very finely all the herbs.
- Put all the herbs into a bowl.
- Add the lemon zest.
- Add the crushed garlic cloves
- Add the salt.
- Mix very well keep it in the fridge until serving.
The basil cilantro is so simple to make . Can it be a sand alone dish? Is then a kind of mixed seasoning that could be used in many dishes?
Thank you for your comment. To answer your questions. I used it into my pasta salad, instead of the traditional pesto. I used it on my chicken breast, on lamb steaks and beef steaks too. Delicious:)
