About this recipe:Lemons in season, this is quick, easy and great flavour. Heat lemons in microwave for 10-20 seconds and you will get more juice. Before squeezing lemons for the juice, spend the time to grate the zest. Store in the freezer and you will always have zest for adding to a risotto or sauce. Can also use limes, oranges, a combination, add ginger, cinnamon. Experiment!
