Default Lime Pie Redux

OK, I was always going to make this again, but after writing about it the other night I got a hankering, so... This time I documented the process.

First, the stars of the show:

01_limes.jpg

Here they are naked, with a big pile of lime zest:

02_naked_limes.jpg

Juice extracted, almost exactly one cup this time:

03_juice.jpg

4 eggs separated:

04_eggs.jpg

Dry ingredients combined in pot: a cup of sugar, 1/3 cup corn starch, a pinch of salt:

05_dry.jpg

Now the juice and a cup of coconut milk mixed in:

06_juices.jpg

Then the zest added, and the whole mess heated to boil, then some of the hot custard "tempered" into the beaten egg yolks, and that mixture whisked back into the pot and simmered:

Now the pre-baked pie shell (admittedly not my forte) sprinkled generously with coconut:

08_shell.jpg

Hot lime filling poured into shell:

Then the pie is topped with meringue:

That is my limit of 10 image attachments, so TBC.

Default Lime Pie Redux Part Deux:

OK, when I left off, the pie was almost ready for the oven. Then it was sprinkled with coconut, then baked:

Mmmmm...

After it cooled we cut a slice:

And my daughter tried a bite. I think she likes it!

So there you have it: Lime-Coconut Meringue Pie a la Nezbleu! Enjoy!

Grilled? The asparagus is a perfect accompaniment to grilled salmon fillet.

And of you like your salmon sans cooking, you can have Gravlax. Since Jacco got me doing this last year, I have found a special spot for it. Sorry about the lousy pics, I am using my wife's camera.

In some cultures this is how you celebrate the life of someone no longer on the planet.
