(Makes 1 serving)

To make the Preserved Lemons

Cut the lemons into wedges from the top to within ½ inch of the bottom; sprinkle salt on the exposed flesh, then reshape the fruit. Place a half inch of salt in the bottom of a sterilized mason jar and add 1/3 of the spices and place the first lemon on top. Repeat with remaining 2 lemons, salt and spices. Press lemons down to release their juices. Add fresh lemon juice if needed to submerge.

Let sit in a cool dry place for 1 month. To use, rinse the lemons, as needed, under running water, removing and discarding pulp.

To make the Chorizo Stuffed Squid 

Stuff the squid tubes with the chorizo and seal with a toothpick (weave and thread). Vacuum seal and cook, sous vide, at 183 degrees F for 2 hours. Remove toothpick, score, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and torch lightly.
