Recipe

Lemon Oil

Yield: Yields 1 cup.

 Drizzle this zesty oil on grilled swordfish, halibut, shrimp, asparagus, or zucchini. Or use it in a viniagrette for an arugula and fresh goat cheese salad. Combined with some chopped fresh thyme or rosemary, it also makes a terrific marinade for chicken cutlets.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup top-quality extra-virgin olive oil
  • Grated zest of 2 lemons (wash the lemons first and use a rasp-style grater for fine, feathery zest with no bitter pith)
