Fresh kaffir lime leaves are commonly used in Thai cuisine to add a citrus fragrance and lemony flavour to food. Find out more about lime leaves.

Lime leaves are obtained from the kaffir lime, which is not a true lime at all but rather a subspecies of the citrus family. Used widely in south-east Asian cooking, especially Thai, lime leaves have a beautifully fragrant citrus smell and a fresh lemony flavour.
