Are lemon leaves edible?

torty | Oct 26, 200704:41 PM

I'm making a shrimp dish tonight that normally contains lemon rind. My neighbor's lemon tree is out of ripe ones, but I picked some leaves and they smell fantastic when you tear them. Can they be used to perfume my dish? Don't want to eat them but they would be simmered in the stock that the shrimp get poached in .
