An easy way to jazz up rice. You can use lemon in place of lime but I think lime looks prettier, to contrast with the yellow.

220 ml water
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
A pinch of salt
Fresh turmeric root

I don't remember making something before where I was so completely satisfied. I think I tend to think of salads as something basic that doesn't require much in the way of culinary chops. But, this changed my mind. The dressing has a nuttiness that works so well with the acidity of the lime. And...
Kaffir lime is a very bitter lime with a knobbly skin. The flesh is not generally used, but the peel and leaves have an intense, heady perfume. You can use either the leaves or the dried peel here. The fresh leaves are available in some supermarkets in the UK, or you can buy them frozen...
This was part of last nights dinner. I used it as a basting sauce over the skirt steak while cooking and as a serving sauce with the fajitas. Mojo made with limes is probably the most popular in Cuban cooking. Cubans probably would exclude the jalapenos, but I likes them.
I love when I have a vision of a recipe I want to build, and I explore my way to something new. I learned a lot with this one, mainly that raw coconut won’t be puréed with what I have available in my kitchen. After stubbornly trying to smooth it out, I finally decided to strain it.
This is a simple enough recipe which produces a very tasty result. The balsamic adds a lovely sweet tang to the chicken. In fact it surprised me how effective such a short marinating time can be. The recipe states cooking on a grill for 1-2 minutes either side or until cooked through. I used a...

This is a light and lovely dish. The grapes and kiwi fruit add zing and dimension to the classic Tequila lime marinade for chicken. Its very easy to make indeed! I served it with sliced avocado and rice and used a blowtorch to char the chicken and chilli. Instead of cooking 'en papillote' you...
