You can juice it and use the juice anywhere you usually use lemon juice. Sometimes I just use the juice in my glass of water.

You can roast asparagus at 400 for 15 minutes and squeeze the lemon on them.

Wrap the zested lemon in plastic wrap, gather the edges together and twist them tightly. Toss into the fridge. It'll keep in the week for juice.
