Yuzu, a cross between a wild mandarin orange and a lemon, is folded into lightly salted butter. Elegant and fresh, it provides a marvelous bittersweet coating for a baked cod fillet en papillote. On a slice of bread, it can’t be beat with a lovely strawberry jam.
Yuzu shape similar to a small grapefruit and grows in the wild in Central China and Tibet from where later was introduced to Korea and Japan. The taste resembles a grapefruit with hints of mandarin orange.
Rarely eaten as a fruit, its zest is use in Japanese cuisine to garnish certain dishes, and the juice use as seasoning like lemon juice.
