A major ingredient for this Moroccan dish is preserved lemon. Not that I am a fan of preserved lemon, of a truth I am indifferent about it because I have to look everywhere for what I don’t like and pay $10 for them.

They add a lovely taste to the dish with their wonderful fragrance. You can try anything new with them or the salt-pickled lemons.
