A note about serious food allergies

Sometimes, there's such a good idea right under our noses, that we're surprised we hadn't thought of it before. Like pairing a flaky, perfect salmon with… citrus and miso? Lemon and lime, two stalwart citrus stars, combine with earthy miso paste to form a dressing-like sauce that's like manna from heaven. The other thought that came to us was combining bang bang sauce, known for its pairing with shrimp, with Brussels sprouts, giving the veggies a bit of a kick. When we put on our thinking caps, good ideas result. Tip: Want to get the most juice out of your lime and lemon? Before cutting, microwave for 15-20 seconds to "soften" the fruit. Then, gently roll the softened fruit on your work surface while pressing on it with your palm. Finally, give yourself some serious mechanical advantage by placing a cut half in between the arms of a pair of tongs to make squeezing much easier.
