Citrus is one of those flavours that does not have a season. Mandarine oranges always remind me of winter. Yet, lemons are forever associated with summer lemonade. Limes and frosted beer glasses transform me to hot Caribbean vacations. Citrus flavours add so much brightness to so many foods and recipes. I can’t imagine having fish without a squeeze of lemon. I love tart grapefruit juice in glazes, And cute little kumquats are delicious (and beautiful) and fresh green salads.
These Coconut Lemon Bars from Simply Citrus cookbook by Marie Asselin are sweet and tangy with a hint of tropical coconut. They are really easy to make as the lemon curd does not need to be cooked in advance. They look gorgeous and are a perfect addition to a cookie platter.
