Gremolata Popcorn

Scott Phillips

Servings: 8 to 10

A blend of fresh lemon zest, garlic, and parsley, gremolata is the classic topping for osso buco, but it also makes a fantastic popcorn topping. Garlic powder stands in for fresh here because it disperses more evenly.


  • 1 Tbs. finely grated lemon zest
  • Kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 oz. (3 Tbs.) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 batch freshly popped Basic Stovetop Popcorn
  • 1 Tbs. garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

    This is delicious popcorn. Some garlic powders are very salty so check the salt level. I usually mix the lemon zest with only 3/4 tsp of kosher salt.
