Charred Lemon Halves 

Charred lemons add a rich and zesty flavor to your food and drinks. A cast iron skillet works well for charring lemons, but when you char them on the grill it adds another element of smokiness. The caramelized lemons extract a warm, tangy juice that you can squeeze over grilled steaks and fish, use to dress salsas and salads, and add to summer cocktails. Make charred lemons a part of your cookout or picnic this weekend. Your guests will love it!

SERVINGS: About 1/3 cup juice

10 minutes cooking. 

3 Paramount Citrus lemons


1. Preheat a medium cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, or heat the grill to medium-high direct heat. (Brush the grate with a little oil to prevent sticking if using a grill.)

2. Cut each lemon in half and place them cut side down in the pan or on the grill. Cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the cut side is charred and the lemon is warm.

3. Remove from the grill and once the lemons are cool enough to touch, squeeze the juice into a bowl. Strain to remove any seeds before using.
