Broccoli with Walnut Gremolata

Traditionally, gremolata combines fresh parsley, lemon rind, and garlic to create a powerful flavor sensation. It adds bright flavor when sprinkled over just about any simply prepared vegetable or fish. Toasted nuts punch up the flavor even more. Substitute pecans or almonds for the walnuts, if you wish.
