The Kaffir lime tree is native to Southeast Asia and is different from the one that gives us the lime we are used to. Its leaves are dark green and glossy when fresh. The dried leaves take on a slightly paler color and retain an unparalleled scent, between lemon and lime, which can be reminiscent of tangerine zest. However, they do not have the acidity or bitterness of citrus fruits. They are added whole or ground, and since they are extremely fragrant, 2 to 3 leaves are usually enough for a recipe. Kaffir Lime Leaves are an indispensable ingredient in many Thai, Indonesian, and Sri Lankan recipes. They are a wonderful addition to any meat or fish marinade. Kaffir Lime Leaves are the perfect solution to any recipe where a touch of citrus without acidity is required.
