Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days; bring to room temperature before using.

Preserved lemons are lemons that have been soaked in a salt-lemon mixture for at least 30 days. Their salty sourness is a signature flavor in Moroccan dishes. Find them at specialty-food stores or online at mustaphas.com.
