Have you thought about preserved lemons, as in Morroccan cuisine? I think they were also known as Lemon Confit, but unlike a normal confit, they lemons are basically cured in salt and used as a garnish. I've never tried them, so I couldn't tell you what the flavor is like. A salty lemon might not work well with salty bacon.

Again, use the smaller lemons with the thinner skin. There is very little pith. And the slices have to be VERY thin. Grilling or sauteeing these slices is a perfect idea as I did eat the lemon with the scallop. The cooking will help reduce the tartness - you MIGHT even consider sauteeing in a bit of bacon grease - that will give you that flavor in a milder form.
