Sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Gremolata

Gremolata is an Italian garnish of lemon zest, minced garlic, and fresh parsley that's traditionally sprinkled raw over a dish. Here, it's stirred into sautéed Brussels sprouts. A squeeze of lemon juice heightens the flavors.



Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ lb. Brussels sprouts, trimmed and thinly sliced
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. lemon juice
Ingredient Line: 
3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ tsp. grated lemon zest, plus more for garnish, optional


Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add Brussels sprouts, and stir to coat with oil. Add 1/4 cup water, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until Brussels sprouts are tender and water has evaporated, stirring occasionally. Stir in parsley, lemon juice, garlic, and lemon zest. Sauté 30 seconds, or until garlic is fragrant. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Transfer to serving bowl, and garnish with lemon zest, if using. TEST
