I made a batch of preserved lemons, but I don't have a tangine and we don't do lamb. In what other recipes and ways can preserved lemons be used?

Asked by DaphneT (5659 points ) January 16th, 2014

The lemons are very salty, and I’m serving a person on a low sodium diet, so I can only use one or two strips per dish, depending on how many the dish serves. Any suggestions?

I know this isn’t strictly what you’re asking, but you don’t have to have a tagine to make tagine. Other types of cooking vessels will do.

I bought a small jar of preserved lemons and have added them to recipes that use lemon juice. The results are usually pretty good.

Anything you can make in a Tagine can likewise be made in a simple Dutch Oven type pot or a crockpot.

And since these lemons are preserved, they’ll keep for a long long time so it really doesn’t matter how little of them you use each time.

They’re really designed to be used more as an accent flavor rather than a main ingredient.

Thanks everyone for all the suggestions. That really helped kick-start my brain on cooking. Today it’ll be basic tuna for lunch with just a punch of preserved lemon.
