I first made this with my beloved Meyer Lemon. It is one fruit but a many-splendid one with flavours, tastes and scents from bitter to sweet and floral.
This recipe plays on the lemony bitterness of our beloved Meyer, enhanced by the smokiness of the grill. Perfectly paired with pan-fried white fish fillets and sauteed potatoes. An easily accomplished weeknight dinner.
A few ideas:
- Sumo mandarins and clementines also work beautifully here
- You could add grilled sweet corn, sliced off the cob to the mix
- maybe add some mint or lemon basil plus the cilantro
- Want to go the seafood way? Make it a side with grilled prawns, calamari, mussels. clams and enjoy away; or poultry —Kitchen Butterfly
For the first 9 years of my life I hated food and really loved sugar till Wimpy (British Fast Food chain) changed my life! These days, all grown up, I've junked junk food and spend my days and nights on a quest - to find and share the sweet, sweet nectar that's food in The #NewNigerianKitchen!
Dreaming, cooking, eating and writing...about and adoring a strong food community that's big and bold enough to embrace the world's diverse cuisines - I'm passionate about celebrating Nigerian cuisine in its entirety.
Why do I love food so? It is forgiving. Make a recipe. Have it go bad....but wake up tomorrow and you can have another go at succeeding! Only with food!
