Preserved Lemon Paste from New York Shuk
Salt-Preserved Lemon Purée
New York Shuk's Preserved Lemon Paste captures the flavor-boosting power of salted-preserved lemons in a smooth, spoonable form—no rinsing or chopping required. Made simply of puréed salt-cured lemons (that's right, just lemons, lemon juice and sea salt), their paste is bold and vibrant with a pleasing citrus funk.
How to use
This Brooklyn-made preserved lemon paste brings a little bit of lemony magic to a variety of dishes. Here are four ways to add zip, zing and zest with just a spoonful and stir:
- Add a few teaspoons to plain yogurt with a glug of good extra virgin olive oil. Slather on a plate and top with roasted vegetables of any kind (we love carrots, honey nut squash, broccolini and zucchini, just to name a few). Slather onto a fish sandwich or use as a dipping sauce for oven fries.
- Punch up your marinades. Combine with za'atar and lots of garlic in this recipe for Slow-Roasted Leg of Lamb.
- Make a dressing—whisk a tablespoon of preserved lemon paste with extra virgin olive oil, a little extra fresh lemon juice and a touch of honey. Toss with bitter chicories and fresh herbs, use to dress potato salad or drizzle over grilled fish and seafood.
- Stir into pasta sauce—try this Pasta with Squid, Harissa & Herby Bread Crumbs.
