Yuzu is used in the kitchen for its juice or for its rind, regardless of whether it has ripened or not. While still green you can zest it to garnish salads, cocktails, sashimi, vinaigrettes and sauces.
When the yuzu is ripe and has a yellowish color, it is used to accompany meats, fish and tofu. Its juice is used to make sauces. We can also prepare stews, jams and infusions.
