Stages of cooking

  1. Take a plastic or a glass bowl and add the zest of one lime into it. Then roll each lime on a kitchen surface, pressing it with your hands. Slice the limes then and juice them into a measuring cup. Set the cup aside for a while. Then dice the onions and peppers. Chop the coriander and set it aside as well.
