Preserved lemons are one of our favorite ingredients as they are the perfect combination of tangy and sweet. We are lucky enough to have a friend in California that sends them to us in their prime - just picked off her trees. But wherever you source your citrus from, here are our top five ways to use preserved lemons.
1. Salad Dressing
Mix one preserved lemon with 1/2 cup of olive oil in a food processor or blender for a delicious salad dressing. Add 2 tsp. of sugar if you are looking for extra sweetness.
2. Over Vegetables & Rice
Chop up appropriate amount of preserved lemons and serve over sautéed mixed vegetables and rice.
3. As a Relish
Mix dates and chopped preserved lemons as a relish for any pork dish. We suggest a nice pork tenderloin.
4. On Fish
Cut the rind of the lemons up and toss with herbs to top your favorite fish - a white fish is ideal.
5. Spread on a Crostini
Dice up finely to use as a topping on a toasted crostini with cream cheese and smoked salmon.
