ISO lemon advice. Everything I make seems so wimpy. Need that intense lemon

Oil doesn't work, zest doesn't work. When I get piccata in a restaurant it has that intense tartness I can't recreate. Help!
Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!

- You could try picking less yellow lemons (like less ripe). . . - mistral - 12:30pm on 02/07/17
- Or adding powdered lemon (TrueLemon) and the zest of fresh. [NT] [LINK] - MarilynFL - 12:50pm on 02/07/17
- Not sure how you're creating the sauce, but this is quite satisfyingly lemony. - MoNJ - 2:28pm on 02/07/17

- What kind of lemons are you using? Try Meyers. - MariaDNoCA - 5:32pm on 02/07/17
- Meyers are not a true lemon but a cross between a standard lemon and mandarin orange - KarenNoCA - 7:06pm on 02/07/17
- I mentioned to try Myers because the zest seems oilier, and the flavor more intense - MariaDNoCA - 9:43pm on 02/07/17
- For example: I baked a yeasted breakfast loaf yesterday...4 Tbl lemon zest plus - cheezz - 2:43am on 02/08/17
