6 bold citrus recipes that taste like pure sunshine

We’ve gathered some of our favorite citrus-based recipes to beat the doldrums of winter.



When summer seems so far away, we can bring brightness and zest to our kitchens with citrus.

Citrus is what we crave in the cold days of winter. And it’s a good thing, because although it’s dreary here, huge grapefruits, Meyer lemons and mandarin oranges are being plucked from trees in Texas, Florida, South America and Mexico.

Winter recipes conjure ideas of steaming bowls of soup and comfort food casseroles, but we need something else. We need risotto covered in lemon zest, meats marinated in lime juice, fresh-squeezed orange juice and bright lemon bars so tart they make our mouths pucker.

So we’ve gathered some of our favorite citrus-based recipes to beat the doldrums of winter. Gathering your ingredients will be pretty easy, since you can find many citrus varieties at local grocery stores now.

Ethan Miller, produce manager at Whole Foods Market in Brookside, says citrus season kicks off in December, when big boxes of mandarins begin arriving.

“Citrus gets big and bold and bright in the winter,” Miller says.

Satsuma mandarins and clementines are the kickoff of Whole Foods’ citrus season. But the citrus customers most look forward to are the mandarins’ bigger cousins, the sumo mandarins.

Sumo mandarins are a cross between several citrus varieties, according to Miller. “People lose their minds when the sumos come in. They buy them by the box.”

This also is the season you’ll find large grapefruits out of Texas and California. Lemons and limes, while always available, will sometimes have even more flavor at peak season.

One interesting citrus variety Miller likes doesn’t actually have any pulp inside. Buddha’s Hand is an unusually shaped fruit, with finger-like sections coming from a base. No segments or juice can be extracted from it, but Miller says they’re often used for their aromatic zest or just as display.

Let the sunshine in with these recipes using big citrus flavor.

Where to get authentic ceviche in Tulsa

 skeptic might wonder if you could actually find good ceviche in Tulsa. Talking to Felipe Enciso leaves little doubt.  Enciso was born in a town outside of Lima, Peru, that holds claim to being the city where ceviche originated. He grew up eating ceviche — a dish of both enormous simplicity and complexity — which is raw fish mixed with what can be as few as one other ingredient: lime juice. Ceviche often also includes onions, peppers and sometimes corn, sweet potatoes or garlic.  When Enciso and his wife, Cecilia, opened their restaurant, Manos Peruanas, he knew there would be ceviche on the menu.

A skeptic might wonder if you could actually find good ceviche in Tulsa. Talking to Felipe Enciso leaves little doubt.

Enciso was born in a town outside of Lima, Peru, that holds claim to being the city where ceviche originated. He grew up eating ceviche — a dish of both enormous simplicity and complexity — which is raw fish mixed with what can be as few as one other ingredient: lime juice. Ceviche often also includes onions, peppers and sometimes corn, sweet potatoes or garlic.

When Enciso and his wife, Cecilia, opened their restaurant, Manos Peruanas, he knew there would be ceviche on the menu.

“Let me explain this. We make it good,” Enciso says. “This is not because I’m the owner of the restaurant. You can find good ceviche in Florida. And I’m proud to say we do it really, really good.”

There’s no doubt he knows the subject matter. Enciso says he ate ceviche at least twice a week growing up in Peru.

He won’t give up his tricks, but Enciso will say he uses sea bass and imported Peruvian lemons.

“That’s the trick. If you use a lime from here, it’s not going to taste the same,” he says.

Many people come to Manos Peruanas, 6703 E. 81st St., for ceviche and other Peruvian dishes. The restaurant also has dishes from Venezuela and Colombia.

Ceviche, though, isn’t as popular with customers in the cold winter months. It’s at this time customers crave the Encisos’ shrimp soup, chupe de camarones. But at the first sign of sunshine, customers begin asking for the ceviche.

 

Citrus juices as part of a healthy lifestyle

“We literally can’t get enough citrus,” says Joy Hulver with Ediblend Superfood Cafe.  With locations at Utica Square and in south Tulsa at East 101st Street and South Sheridan Road, Ediblend makes juices and smoothie blends to order and has refrigerated cases of juices ready to go.  And many of those juices are loaded with citrus. “We definitely use a ton of citrus in our blends because of its immunity-boosting powers,” Hulver says.  She says customers also appreciate blends with citrus for the soluble fiber, which aids in digestion and keeps you full and more satisfied. Courtesy Ediblend Superfood Cafe.

“We literally can’t get enough citrus,” says Joy Hulver with Ediblend Superfood Cafe.

She says customers also appreciate blends with citrus for the soluble fiber, which aids in digestion and keeps you full and more satisfied.

One of the most popular juices at Ediblend is the Tropical Orange, a pretty blend of orange, carrot, pineapple, apple, ginger, dates and coconut water.

Those seeking citrus also will like the Lemon Zinger, a bright yellow blend of lemons, cayenne pepper and agave. Or, try the hydrating signature blend, the 1717, with orange, banana, strawberries, dates and filtered water.

Anyone who has tasted Ediblend’s popular Detox Green knows it also has a burst of lemon, which Hulver says is a great detoxifier.
