I was born in Montreal, Quebec and lived in Ottawa and Toronto, Ontario for quite a long time and now I'm living in Halifax Nova Scotia. Why am I telling you this? Because I have never seen lemon trees growing anywhere near me....lots of fruit trees in the Niagara region...cherries, pears, plums, peaches (so good) and apples everywhere...but no lemons. The only time I ever saw a lemon tree up close and personal was in my cousin's back yard in sunny Florida. That said, I am always using lemons, in salad dressings, in marinades and even in a biscotti I recently made.
Not only are lemons not local, this week we seem to have eaten out more than in and none of my dishes really starred lemons, but I really did want to contribute to the Fresh Produce Event. I thought I would just share a few of my favorite lemony chicken recipes......
Grilled Cilantro Citrus Chicken
Afterall it is BBQ season - the marinade works great on shrimps & scallops too
Just because my mouth waters just thinking about it
Unbelieveably easy especially when it's too hot to do much of anything
So I apologize for not sharing a new, new creation, but I hope you enjoy these just the same.
