Linguine with Gremolada

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

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.

  1. Grated zest from 2 large lemons (about 2 teaspoons)
  2. Grated zest from 1 orange (about 2 teaspoons)
  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  6. 3/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  8. 1/2 cup olive oil
  9. 1 pound linguine
  1. 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.
  2. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the linguine until just done, about 12 minutes. Drain and toss with the sauce.
Notes

Variations

• Linguine with Gremolada and Crab: Toss 1/2 pound of lump crabmeat, picked free of any shell, with the linguine and the gremolada.

• Linguine with Gremolada and Shrimp: Add 1/2 pound of peeled uncooked medium shrimp to the pasta during the last 1 minute of cooking time.

• Linguine with Gremolada and Scallops: Season 1/2 pound of sea scallops with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in a large, nonstick frying pan over moderately high heat and cook the scallops for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Top the pasta with the scallops.

Suggested Pairing

The acidity in this dish will pair well with a light, simple white wine. Among the many good choices are Vinho Verde from Portugal and Fendant from Switzerland.
