Default Fried Meyer lemon slices

I just returned from a lovely luncheon at La Provence Restaurant, here
in Roseville.

I had calamari, which was excellent, but the thing that was beyond
wonderful were the fried Meyer lemon slices that were served as a
garnish.

The slices were paper thin and dropped in the same batter as the
calamari and then fried. They were "almost" crisp and tasted so good.
There were about six slices on the plate and I ate every one of them

I'm going to try this at home and the next time I go there am going to
order a whole plate of these delightful morsels.

Aren't they just wonderful??!? Mario Batali often garnishes his dishes with
fried Meyer lemon slices, particularly as an accompaniment to fish.
'Course, I'm with you: they're just fine on their own, and even better when
heaped on large plates!

Don't save any of those slices for me, please. I will gladly eat an
unadulterated lemon, instead. )

Probably just a silly question from a neophyte: But is this done with
"whole" lemon slices, or is the lemon skinned?

Cheers, Phred.

I'd have them after dinner, unless dieting. Tart citrus is an appetite
suppressant for me. One taste of a salad with grapefruit, meyer
lemons, preserved lemons or pomegranite and I don't want my entree.

Default Fried Meyer lemon slices

The slices were from a whole lemon...rind and all.

The slices were paper thin, and they were delicious.

After Spitz mentioned that Mario Batalia made them, I went to
foodnetwork.com and found the recipe. Nothing to it and I think I'll
be making these to garnish my sliced turkey platter for Thanksgiving.
That is, if I don't eat them all before they get to the dining room!

Here is Mario's recipe...
Lemon Crisps
4 cups vegetable oil
2 lemons
1 1/2 cups rice flour
Watercress, for garnish


In a medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, heat 1 to 2 inches of the
oil in a deep saucepot to about 250 degrees F. Cut off the ends of the
lemons. Using a sharp mandolin, slice the lemons into thin rings about
1/16th of an inch. Coat each ring individually in the rice flour and
fry in the hot oil until it begins to slightly brown. Remove from the
oil and place on a paper towel and allow them to sit for a minute to
fully cook.

I saw Tuesday for the first time in my life Meyer lemons. They were at Whole
Foods in Baltimore, MD. For non-organic, they were $2.99 a lb. and waxed.
I was tempted to buy a couple -- but I had no recipe nor idea what would be
the best use for them, so I passed them up. But they were cute!

Can't remember if it suppressed my appetite, but when I was little, my
mother used to "drill" a hole in a lemon and insert a peppermint stick in
the hole. I'd slurp the lemon juice up through the peppermint stick,
straw-fashion; my goodness, that mix of tart citrus and mint was a thing of
beauty. And a great childhood memory to boot!

Is lemoncello generally made from Meyer lemons? Or is it that Meyer lemons
just make better lemoncello?
Thanks.

I don't know if it's sold at Fred Meyer's ;-), but I know what a Meyer
lemon is.

It's a lemon variety that was first imported from China by a Mr. Meyer
in 1908. They are smaller, thin skinned and sweeter than a typical
lemon. The taste is described as a cross between a lemon and a
tangerine.

Imho the meyer lemons are less acidic, and make a better lemoncello

I will go to my vegetable store just to buy Meyer lemons. I avoid the
regular (Persian) ones as much as possible.
