Lemons and Limes
A glorious selection of recipes that all celebrate the unique sharp and aromatic burst of lemons and limes.
From fresh seafood to luxurious pasta and heavenly desserts – these citrus fruits can make your food sing. They are both perfect as an antidote to the heat of fresh chilli or pungent garlic, the best friend of herbs and olive oil, roasting meat and freshly grilled fish. Their brightness is also perfect in sweet, buttery desserts and refreshing drinks. The book offers more than 65 bright and zesty recipes, and investigates the history and culture of lemons and limes, their health benefits, and how to grow your own.
Try small bites such as Lemon, Mushroom and Tarragon Arancini or Salmon and Kaffir Lime Fishcakes. Make the most delicious soups and salads with a Summer Grain Salad or Pork Dumplings in Lime-leaf Broth. Fish and seafood recipes include Grilled Lemon Seabass with Roasted Red Pepper and Basil Butter, while the meat and poultry section is full of hearty yet summery dishes like Spiced Roasted Chicken with Chickpeas, Carrots and Preserved Lemon. Try citrus sweets and drinks such as a Gin and Tonic Cake or a Mint and Lime Granita, and learn how to make your own Preserved Lemons and Limes, Hollandaise Sauce and Lime Pickle in the sauces and preserves chapter.
