Roasted Bone Marrow with Fresh Horseradish Gremolata

Marrow bones need to be soaked before roasting. The bones can vary in size; smaller bones will cook more quickly than larger ones.

  • servings: 4




  • 2 pounds marrow bones (2 to 3 inches each)

For the Gremolata

  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • 1/2 baguette, thinly sliced and toasted


  1. Step 1

    Place bones in a bowl with ice water, and refrigerate overnight, changing water once.

  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Drain bones, and pat dry. Stand bones upright on a rimmed baking sheet, and roast until marrow is slightly puffed and warmed through, 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Make the gremolata: Combine parsley, horseradish, and lemon zest in a small bowl. Stir in lemon juice and oil. Sprinkle marrow with salt, and serve immediately with baguette and horseradish gremolata.
