Traditional gremolata has only greens, lemon, and garlic. This version adds jalapeños (or any other spicy chili you have at home) and whole-grain mustard for extra spiciness and goodness.

Notes & tips

The easiest way to peel garlic is to smash it: put a clove of garlic on a cutting board, put your chef’s knife on top of it so the blade side lays on the clove, and hit the side of the knife with your hand. Now you could peel the clove.
