I’d like you to meet my new favorite green sauce –Preserved Lemon Gremolata! If you’ve been here a while, you’ll know there are lots and lots of sauces on the blog, but this one makes use of those preserved lemons we made a couple of weeks ago! And I know you’ll find a million uses for this.

Use this over grilled fish, grilled chicken, kabobs or grilled veggies, or stir it into lentils, white beans or chickpeas. Toss with pasta and create a tasty pasta salad. Spoon it over avocado toast or over your poached eggs. You get the idea.

If you don’t have preserved lemons, this Gremolata Recipe uses regular lemons. 🙂

  1. 2 guests monopolized the mason jar of this that I put on the table. The other 2 guests complained for days afterwards that they didn’t get enough of it. It’s genius!

  2. This was so good! I had an abundance of cilantro and garlic scapes from the garden so I subbed those. Ok, not exactly the recipe but adding the preserved lemon is genius! It’s a perfect pair with the Moroccan Chicken. The Moroccan Chicken is a family favorite by the way!

  3. Made this to go with our Mediterranean Chicken roast Lunch everyone loved it. I had preserved lemons which needed using but no parsley however basil plant is in full bloom so substituted that for parsley. Every one loved it and youngsters took the recipe to make at home. Thanks for sharing

  4. I wonder if it might better to blend the lemons in a good blender as might be too big a pieces to eat

    1. The lemons when preserved become very tender, and I found I like the little pieces- pops of bright flavor. Yes you could blend into a paste, if that is what you prefer. I did try that first, but decided I liked it better this way- up to you. 🙂

  5. Used scapes from the farmers market and added some fresh mint. Delicious on grilled veges!
