Meyers Lemon Squares with Sea Salt and Olive Oil

lemon bars

Lemon curd baked on a layer of my favorite shortbread crust is known as a lemon square or lemon bar. I have recently been overwhelmed with deliveries of Meyers lemons to my doorstep every week. The lemons are oversized and over juicy with a fragrant delicate aroma and taste that is someplace between a sour tangy flavor and a tangerine type of sweetness. You can make this recipe with any kind of lemons, but this is the season for juicing those Meyers lemons in south Louisiana and making the most of our bounty. Melissa Clark inspired this recipe with an addition of olive oil and sea salt to the usual lemon curd. Perfect touch!
