How to zest a lime with a microplane
Alternative: box grader
You want to slide the lime down the side of the grater with the smallest holes. Be sure to watch your fingers so you don't cut yourself as you are sliding the lime down the sharp holes. Turn the lime with every swipe making sure to only zest the green of the peel.
Alternative: vegetable peeler
Slide the blade over the lime peel taking small peices only taking the green off from the peel. Roate the lime with every swipe so that you dont get down to the white bitter part of the peel.
Once you have all of your little slices, pile them up and chop them into a mince.
