Simply Ming

Preserved Lemons (#311)

Guest Chef: Lidia Bastianich. Lemons preserved in lemon juice and salt are a staple in Moroccan cooking. Their salty, tangy flavor works no matter what the culinary geography is - and Ming customizes this technique by adding lemongrass and jalapenos to add some extra zing to the lemony flavor. Ming uses Preserved Lemons as his master recipe for three dishes that move from East to West: Shrimp Satay with Spicy Preserved Lemon Salsa, Grilled Salmon with Asian Gremolata, and Preserved Lemon Couscous Salad. The mother of Italian cooking in America, Lidia Bastianich stops by to make her Chicken Breast with Preserved Lemon Caper Sauce. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
