Gremolata, which is a garnish made from chopped parsley, lemon peel, and garlic, adds a bright punch of flavor to this turkey recipe. It's an easy accompaniment to make, and it's great alongside other meats, fish, and even pasta. The turkey is seasoned with salt and pepper and then gets dredged in flour that's seasoned with lemon zest. It cooks quickly on the stove, and this whole dinner comes together in about 20 minutes. Serve it with asparagus or spinach or broccoli on the side. And don't forget to squeeze some fresh lemon on top before you dig in.
