Lime, kaffir

Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

The aromatic leaves of the kaffir lime tree are a dark shiny green and shaped with two sections. They are used in many Southeast Asian dishes, particularly Thai, including curries, salads and soups. The leaves may be used whole or finely shredded or pounded to release the aromatic citrus flavour. Use with a light hand: a little makes a big difference; too much can give a bitter flavour.

The fruit of this tree, with its coarse, pitted skin, contains very little juice but the zest is grated and added to dishes. Fresh kaffir lime leaves are available at most supermarkets and greengrocers.
