Greek Salad with Meyer Lemon
Meyer lemon adds a fruity twist to a familiar classic. Whisking your dressing by hand ensures that the olive oil does not turn too bitter, a common problem when a blender or mixer is used to emulsify dressings. Click here to see more No-Cook Dishes for Hot Summer Nights.

Named after a piece of French heavy artillery used in WWI, this updated version uses the sweeter juice of the Meyer lemon next to the gentle greenness of fresh cucumber. I like to use Hendrick’s gin for this one to compliment the cucumber. Read more about Classic New Orleans Cocktails for Mardi Gras.

Striped Bass with Meyer Lemon Chimichurri
Upon looking at the photo, you may be asking yourself: Why are there still Meyer lemon slices inside the fish? Surely you wouldn’t want to eat them. But actually, eating a Meyer lemon is nothing like eating a regular lemon. I was first turned on to the idea of Meyer lemons not just as a garnish, but as an integral part of a dish, during my brief stint as a cook at a well-known Italian restaurant in New York City. There, they served it in a refreshing salad with watermelon radishes, snowflake celery leaves, and pickled onion arranged on a base of burrata. Such was my inspiration when I created this dish. I wanted something quick, refreshing, and fruity. When thinly sliced, Meyer lemon isn't overwhelming — rather, it brightens up mildly flavored ingredients such as this striped bass. The slight bitterness in the rind balances out the slightly sweet flavor of the fruit nicely. Cooking whole fish doesn't get a whole lot easier than this.

Meyer Lemon Scallop Ceviche
Hotategai. That's what scallop sashimi is in Japanese. I've always thought that raw scallop was ever so slightly sweet. Delicious, but perhaps in need of a bit of balance. So I created this dish in the hope of bringing that balance to lovely sweet scallop. Meyer lemons provide acidity with just enough sweetness to keep the scallops from taking on too much zing. This is a great appetizer to serve when you have quality scallops. See all ceviche recipes. Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes.

Sunchoke Hummus with Meyer Lemon
I'm typically a stickler for authenticity, but when I heard we were doing hummus, I couldn't help but get a little creative with it, especially when I saw that sunchokes were available at the store. Inspired, while admittedly being unsure of how it would turn out, I set out to make a sunchoke hummus. Why not? Luckily, it turned out pretty well — at least, I like to think so. A little fruity sweetness from the Meyer lemon and an earthy richness from the sunchokes pair off well with the usual chickpeas and hint of sharp raw garlic. And experimenting with new ingredients or combinations of ingredients is part of the fun of cooking. It's easy to forget that sometimes the best cooking requires no recipe at all. Or maybe that should read, "The best recipes require no cooking at all." Well, either way, here's my recipe for sunchoke hummus. Click here to see 6 Dip-Worthy Hummus Recipes.

Halibut Cheeks
In cooking these tender and flavorful cheeks, I approached them as I would scallops. Searing them on a hot cast-iron pan, flipping them, and then allowing the residual heat from the pan to finish the cooking process. They are delicate and do not require a lot of cooking time and are best a little underdone. Because they are so flavorful, I kept the seasonings to a minimum and just brightened it up with sweet Meyer lemons and refreshing basil. Feel free to serve them with roasted asparagus as I did or other seasonal vegetables. Check out more Healthy and Hearty Halibut Recipes.
