No Persian or Middle Eastern dish would be complete without these small Iranian lime slices. They replicate the taste of preserved limes/lemons and are perfect in stews, tagines or generally any saucy dish that requires a fermented strong citrusy flavour. Combines well with olives and fresh herbs like parsley and mint. Simply add 2-3 slices to the cooking liquid or to rice and they will soften. Remove seeds and skin before serving. Kabsa is a traditional rice dish popular in the Gulf states that uses dried limes as one of its ingredients. Defintely worth a try.
