A lot of chefs would tell you that if they could only have a few ingredients to cook with, along with oil and salt, citrus would be one of their choices. It's so versatile and so impactful in dishes, both cooked and raw, across all cuisines from Mediterranean to Asian.

With aromas of lemon and tangerine, yuzu's knobby yellow fruit contains juice with a subtle sweetness. The tartness is present, but more subdued than lemon or lime juice.  Yuzu juice is perfect in a vinaigrette with grapeseed or canola oil, tossed with greens, some poached shrimp and tangerine segments.  It also makes a gorgeous ceviche - toss cubed snapper with diced jalapeno, cilantro and red onion and yuzu juice.  Let it marinate for 15 - 20 minutes and enjoy with popcorn, as in Peru.

Yuzu juice is also great in desserts - make a curd with yuzu juice instead of lemon and serve it over poundcake.

And of course, cocktails...whiskey, a splash of yuzu and simple syrup and a sprig of mint!

yummy yuzu

Love this stuff. Tastes like citrus but with added complexity. There are floral components in the flavor profile not present in other citrus juices. At this price, I probably wouldn't use this product to braise a pork shoulder, but I would definitely put in the sauce for the pork, or anything else for that matter.

A Citrus For All Seasons

Since I was a child growing up surrounded by lemon and orange groves, the smell and taste of a great citrus has been a part of my foodie life. Fish, dressings, baked goods all benefit greatly from citrus. I added Yuzu to my creative food repetoire as soon as I found it on this website. Since then I use it for the most delicious and refreshing "lemonade" ever in the summer and on vegetables from my garden throughout the seasons. It has that " je ne sais quoi" flavor that baffles , yet excites and satifies the senses. A must for all pantries/refrigerators!

Yuzu- not your average citrus

This is the good stuff! I use it on anything that benefits from a little zing- fish, salads, you name it.
Yuzu's taste is not sharp, it is a more subtle citrus.
Try it, you'll like it.

Yum with a zing

I love using this juice in salad dressings, beverages, dipping sauces, anything that wants a bit of citrus. It definately tastes like citrus, but not one the western palate can easily identify. It is somehow more mellow than either lime or lemon juice, and has a sort of floral element that is delightful.
