A key ingredient in South American and Middle Eastern styles of cooking, it is also found in the currently popular Pacific Rim cuisine, which melds the Caribbean, West coast and Asian flavoring styles. Dehydrated lime is the “zest” of the lime and is used as a tangy ingredient in a variety of rubs and marinades. Our dehydrated lime peel is sourced from a combition of Key limes, Mexican limes and West Indian limes.
Lime zest is also used in rice, salsa, viigrettes as well as in fish and chicken recipes. To reconstitute, cover with warm water and soak for 15 minutes and then pour off any remaining liquid.
