1 cup Italian parsley
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind

How do I make it?
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Brush pink ling fillets on both sides with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place fillets in frying pan and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
Meanwhile, place garlic in food processor and blitz until finely chopped. Add pepitas, parsley, lemon juice and rind, salt, a couple of good grinds of pepper and the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil and pulse until finely chopped.
Remove fish from pan and serve with a generous spoonful of pepita gremolata on top. Any remaining gremolata can be stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
