Linguine with Gremolada

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 15m

Serves 4

Gremolada traditionally consists of minced garlic, parsley, and lemon zest. We've added lemon juice and orange zest to bring even more citrus flavor to the dish. The garlic here is raw and the quantity generous; feel free to cut back.

ingredients

  • Grated zest from 2 large lemons (about 2 teaspoons)
  • Grated zest from 1 orange (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 pound linguine

directions

In a small glass or stainless-steel bowl, mix together the grated lemon and orange zests, the garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil.

In a large pot of boiling water, salted water, cook the linguine until just done, about 12 minutes. Drain and toss with the sauce.
