Caperberry Gremolata

Yield 1/3 cup
Thumbnail-size caperberries are what remain after the petals of the flowers of the caper bush have dropped off; capers themselves are the brined or pickled flower buds.

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons caperberries (see Note), finely chopped, or salt-packed capers, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

How to Make It

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and let stand until the flavors develop, at least 20 minutes.

  2. Make Ahead: The gremolata can be kept refrigerated in a covered bowl for up to 5 days.

  3. Serve With: Grilled, sautéed or roasted tuna steaks, halibut steaks or fillets, pork loin or shrimp; pan-roasted chicken breasts (stuff about 1 tablespoon under the skin of each of 4 chicken breasts)

  4. Notes: Caperberries are available at specialty food stores.
