Recipe Notes: I've seen the coriander-citrus combination in a few recipes around the web lately (for example in this great lime meringue tart recipe) so I tried it out in a lime curd. The coriander is subtle but does come through nicely and makes a wonderful pairing with the tart citrus flavors.


Coriander-Infused Lime Curd Recipe

(by Nicole Branan)


  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon crushed coriander seeds
  • 9 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into half-tablespoon-sized pieces


  • Combine lime juice and coriander seeds in a small saucepan, set over low heat and heat just until the juice starts to steam.
  • Transfer to a glass bowl or glass liquid measuring cup, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge over night.
  • In a saucepan, whisk together sugar and egg yolks.
  • Pour the lime juice through a fine strainer into the sugar/yolk mix. Whisk until smooth.
  • Turn on the heat, set it to medium, then add the butter.
  • Cook, whisking continuously, until the curd is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. (Be careful not to let it boil).
  • Take the saucepan off the heat, then pour the curd into a glass container and refrigerate.
