Fresh Finger limes (Citrus caviar)
Finger Lime season is here again!
Native to the sub-tropical rainforests of Australia this is a departure from our usual Japanese citrus, the pearls of citrus burst in the mouth and pair spectacularly well with sushi, sashimi and almost any fish dish. The sensation is much like caviar but with a lemon and lime acidic, tangy flavour that is only released when the tiny bubbles are burst in the mouth. Turning from clear, light green to red over the season these are visually stunning and as well as an attractive topping they make for wonderful surprise incorporated into dishes unseen and in cocktails.
