Yuzu is a citrus fruit resulting from the crossing of a wild mandarin and a lemon. It is native to East Asia (probably China) and widely cultivated in Japan. It looks like a small grapefruit (its diameter is about 6 cm) dented. The zest of this round lemon is irregular, but easy to detach and particularly fragrant. Its flesh, scarce, is also scarce.
Yuzu is used in both sweet and savory recipes.
He notes a sauce, accompany scallops or white fish, he seasons fish tartares, perfumes a salad. It is one of the main ingredients of ponzu sauce.
In pastry, it intensely perfumes any preparation, from simple cake to citrus pie. It often goes well with black sesame in various entremets and cakes.
