Mayonnaise is rarely associated with Italian cuisine by Americans. In fact, the Italians use mayonnaise a lot in everything from panini, little sandwiches, to this salsa gremolada, which is a perfectly fine accompaniment to grilled fish, as long as you use it in moderation. Make sure the parsley is completely dry before you chop it.

1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
