Crisp Lemon Calf Liver

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bergy

I know, I know, some of you can't tolerate liver but for those of us that love it try this recipe! The liver comes out crisp and has a wonderful flavor with just a hint of lemon. Even kids have been known to like it. Substitute Chicken livers if you wish.

We love liver and this was a very nice change from the ordinary. I would have never thought of lemon. Thanks
