Limoneira Lemons

A delivery of California citrus was offered to me and arrived yesterday. Mr. Mountain Breaths called me at work while admiring the beautiful green box. We love anything "lemon" in this household. I drink a glass of fresh squeezed lemon juice in a glass of water first thing in the morning. Adding fresh lemon juice or lemon slices to hot or chilled water is a great way to naturally flavor water.

I will surely be looking for Limoneira lemons at Trader Joe's. I understand they will be available soon! I think Costco may also have them. I have never seen (or felt) such a beautiful lemon here in central New York. LOL
Thank you Limoneira! 

This is a shrimp dish that I make on a regular basis. I'll be making this tonight with these beautiful lemons.  

Garlic Lemon Shrimp


1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 to 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 to 6 medium cloves garlic crushed and minced 
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Salt, to taste

Directions: In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat until butter stops foaming, about 30 to 45 seconds. Add the shrimp and garlic and sauté over medium heat, turning frequently until the shrimp just turn pink, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the parsley, lemon juice, and salt to taste; stir well. Remove the pan from the heat and serve.

I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. What a beautiful gift!
    We are lemon water/green tea drinkers too..and we love shrimp:)

  2. Oh you lucky girl! I'll bet it smelled great when you opened the box-enjoy:@)

  3. I will look for these lenoms at Trader Joe's. We, too, drink lemon juice each morning and use it for cooking and baking daily. What a nice gift! Will try the shrimp soon, Thanks!

  4. Another lemon-lover here! I'll have to look for these at Costco next time I'm there. Your shrimp sound wonderful, Debbie!

  5. Also a lemon lover - I wondered if you were secretly making limoncello!! Enjoy!

  6. Warm lemon water, but with a dash of Tabasco is what I drink every morning, too, Debbie! What a wonderful gift to receive with the box of lemons. I bought a huge bag of lemons for $2.50 and have been making lots of lemony things. I'll try your shrimp recipe, too. I have a similar one, a recipe from Tyler Florence...shrimp scampi with linguine. Happy weekend to you, my friend!

  7. Ooh, Debbie, I am like you - LOVE lemons! I also drink lemons squeezed in my water first thing each day, and then all day. I keep fresh ones sliced in the fridge. Your recipe looks wonderful - pinning!

  8. Love my lemons! I will look for these at Trader Joe's. I use a lot of fresh lemon in my cooking and drink it squeezed in water and tomato juice. Your recipe looks delicious.
    Have a great day……….

  9. Lemons are wonderful Debbie. I am loving shrimp, so I shall be trying this recipe.
    Have a wonderful weekend. xo

  10. I love anything lemon too. What a nice surprise you got in the mail. Lemons have many health benefits also.
