This recipe came over with my grandmother from England. It is great as a spread on toast, or use for filling in frozen pre-baked tart shells....top with whipped cream for a quick and easy dessert for unexpected guests.
Lemon and asparagus are a classic combination and there are many versions here on the site. In this version, the lemons are roasted along with the asparagus allowing them to caramelize releasing a wonderful tangy-sweet accent to the asparagus stalks. Even better, this heart healthy dish skips the butter and gently uses extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs. The recipe easily doubles or triples for a larger group.
This is very much like Key Lime Pie beause of the similarity of ingredients and no baking time. Great taste and texture. From Taste of Home Magazine. Make ahead - refrigeration time is 3 to 4 hours before serving.
This recipe can be prepared in 45 minutes or less. Serve this tangy treat with biscuits, toast, or scones. Or use it as a dessert dip or spread between the layers of a cake. From Gourmet, 1999. Also, to be used with my recipe for Recipe #212709 or Recipe #46377!
This recipe makes about 7-8 salmon cakes, so you might want to double the recipe and the aioli as well. If you are serving these as a brunch to guests, then serve the salmon cakes on a platter lined with mixed greens and drizzled with the aioli on top or on the side, or just serve them on a plate...which ever way you choose to serve them they are delicious!
Melt in your mouth, tangy lemon taste. Hard to resist!! Freezes well
I've never made these with the poppy seeds, only with the lemon rind, we love it, nice tangy taste and melt in your mouth. They have become a traditional Christmas item paired with the traditional shortbread.
