Chef’s hacks

The Irish Times Magazine - - FOOD- FILE -

“Limes can more of­ten than not be rock hard. So, to get the most juice out of them, mi­crowave your limes for about 20- 40 sec­onds – depend­ing on your mi­crowave – to soften them up and al­low for easy and ef­fi­cient juice ex­trac­tion. Just so you don’t waste any­thing, zest the limes first, then al­low the zest to dry in a warm place in your kitchen overnight. You can then mix the dried zest with salt in a pes­tle and mor­tar to cre­ate a great de­li­cious sea­son­ing for fish or chicken.” Bryan McCarthy is head chef at Greenes Res­tau­rant and Cask Cock­tail Bar, and owner of Bao Boi Cork
