Step 1
Wash the lemon with water. Cut in half lengthwise, remove seeds.
Step 2
In frying pan or skillet, heat 2 T of olive oil at medium-high. Place lemon facedown and sear for 3 minutes until it begins to char. Remove from heat.
Step 3
Use a zester, sharp knife or grater to zest the lemon. Squeeze juice into a bowl with the zest.
Step 4
With the exception of the remaining olive oil, stir in the ingredients. When blended, slowly pour in olive oil while whisking.
Step 5
Keep refrigerated for up to 7 days. Let sit at room temperature and shake the bottle a few minutes before adding to your dish.
