Melt unsalted butter in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl, and set aside to cool slightly.
In another medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, large eggs, and large egg yolk until well combined.
Add fresh lemon juice, finely grated lemon zest, and salt to the sugar and egg mixture, and whisk until smooth.
Gradually whisk in the melted and slightly cooled butter until fully incorporated.
Microwave the mixture on 50% power for one minute, then stir.
Continue microwaving at 100% power in one-minute intervals, stirring after each interval until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (approximately 4 to 5 minutes in total). The curd will continue to thicken as it cools.
Strain the lemon curd through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any solids or zest, and pour it into sterile jars.
Allow the lemon curd to cool to room temperature, then cover and store it in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
