Can you zest a Clementine? I'm making chocolate-orange Madeleines, which I've done before (they're basically amazing), but I don't have any normal oranges on hand and I'm not sure what Clementine zest will taste like.

Yep. Tastes a bit more tangeriny, but similar to orange zest.
Yes, use it--it's lovely. Think tangerine zest.
Agree - it's yummy, and to my taste, more interesting than orange. The only thing to watch for when you're zesting is to go lightly and not go too far into the pith. The zesty layer is much thinner and the skin can rip pretty quickly if you're overzealous (voice of experience here).
Yup! It's easier to zest cold fruit so you might want to stick them in the fridge first. (It's easier to juice room temperature, though.)

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
Sturdy enough to grill, fry, and turn into ice cream sandwiches, too
