10 Meyer Lemon Recipes We Love
Meyer lemon season is short, so scoop 'em up while you can! The citrus fruits are less tart and more fragrant than regular lemons and can be used in everything from salads to desserts.
Meyer Lemon Macadamia Nut Tart
This gorgeously presented tart from Love and Olive Oil pairs the delectable Meyer lemon with a buttery macadamia nut crust. Such a stunning creation really gives the seasonal fruit the spotlight it deserves!
Herb-Roasted Fish With Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette
Coley Cooks has dressed her delicate barramundi with a vibrant and herbaceous vinaigrette that incorporates both Meyer lemon zest and juice. Thin slices of lemon are also involved, making this dish a triple threat.
Psst… Can’t find barramundi in your grocery store? Look for perch, grouper or sea bass instead.
Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Cake
Whether you call it cake or quick bread, this loaf from Browned Butter Blondie is bursting with Meyer lemon flavor. The poppy seeds give it an exciting texture and also bring attention to the tender crumb.
Meyer Lemon Pudding Cake
Pudding cakes are a unique delight, as they combine an airy and moist cake with the creamiest pudding imaginable in the same dessert. This version from Simply Scratch is particularly special because Meyer lemons are the key flavor component.
Meyer Lemon Ice Cream
Kitchen Joy’s homemade Meyer lemon ice cream begins with lemon curd and ends with a cool, creamy concoction that will delight your palate. Plain vanilla ice cream might not cut it after you’ve had a taste of this!
Meyer Lemon Crinkle Cookies
Ginger and cardamom complement the Meyer lemon in these attractive cookies from Pineapple and Coconut. They’re rolled, smothered in both granulated and powdered sugar, and baked until perfectly golden.
See what else you can make with cardamom, too. (It’s our favorite secret ingredient!)
