Ingredient Spotlight: Lemons by Nathan Oh

The lemon might be one of the most under-appreciated ingredients out there. A lemon is technically a fruit, along with the lime. I highly recommend it mixed with olive oil about 50-50 Lemon has a ph level of 2.2 and is 5 to 6 % citric acid, making it very sour, it is a great seasoning with fish, seafood, chicken, and almost anything else, especially salad. Most salty, and rich foods go especially well with it. Lemon makes almost every food better, you will find it in most of my recipes because otherwise the food might be a bit overwhelming. So juice away and enjoy! 

 

P.S. Make sure to wash you hands after touching the flesh of a lemon.
