In a nutshell: Zesty lemon infused olive oil made by nuns in the South of France.
Use this excellent aromatised oil to make citrusy salad dressings, add to a herb-infested tabbouleh or simply drizzle over some grilled fish with herbs or use to make an intense wok-fried lemon chicken sautéing also with onions, peppers and herbs.
