Shaved Brussels Sprout, Meyer Lemon, and Quinoa Salad
Shaved brussels sprouts heat up and sparkle with dried chile and Meyer-lemon juice. Quinoa and walnuts make the salad a super-satisfying lunch.
Cacio e Pepe with Lemon
Cacio e pepe is practically synonymous with Pecorino Romano -- but Pecorino clumps when cooked. Add it at the end, instead, which also makes the most of its sharp flavor. Lemon adds spunk -- that is, acidity and freshness.
Quick Preserved Lemons
This secret weapon for authentic Middle Eastern fare usually takes weeks to make, but if you use finely sliced thin-skinned Meyer lemons, you can re-create the unique flavor and texture overnight. Finely chop and add to vinaigrettes, tagines, and marinades.
Meyer-Lemon and Coconut Layer Cake
Carrot-Poppyseed Cake with Lemon Glaze
Classic carrot cake takes cues from lemon-poppy seed loaf in this elegant hybrid. It has all the warming spices of a traditional recipe, but the tiny, satisfyingly crunchy seeds replace nuts and raisins in the batter. And instead of a thick cream-cheese frosting, it's topped with delicate Meyer-lemon glaze.
Preserved Meyer Lemons
When a Meyer lemon is fully ripe, its thin, smooth skin should be a rich yellow-orange. Use these preserves in salads or stews, or whisk the pulp into a salad dressing or a Bloody Mary.
Rustic Meyer Lemon Tart
The delicate flavor of Meyer lemons can get lost in the shuffle of most lemon desserts. But this recipe is the perfect reason to seek out the special citrus; the simple curd filling really lets them shine. The dish was inspired by recipes in " Chez Panisse Desserts," by Lindsey Remolif Shere.
