Preserved lemons

I got obsessed with them!!! As soon as I saw Jamie Oliver using them in the lamb tagine he cooked in an episode of 15 minutes meals, my only task was to find and buy them.

Eventually, I got my hands on a jar of Belazu Beldi Preserved Lemons in a big Sainsbury’s in Whitechapel, and I couldn’t wait to try them and feel their taste. Unfortunately, I don’t have a tagine pot – YET – and not being an expert of Moroccan cuisine, I tried to add them to other recipes.

First, I chopped one in a salad to add a little extra kick to a quite blunt lettuce, tomato and cucumber mix. And it proved to be delicious!

Then, I haven’t said that in the post – silly me – I stirred one of this zesty gems in the rice salad I prepared. It was very subtle, but that citrussy punch it gave to the whole thing was great!

I’m thinking about a Greek yogurt dressing to accompany beef burgers, and I’m definitely up for an addition of preserved lemon!

Stay tuned!
