Cool Tool: Lime Squeezer

My friend Catherine, a fabulous cook, told me about this nifty lime squeezer gadget. I have to admit we were making G&Ts at the time and hanging out on the porch, not in the kitchen. But now I can’t live without it for recipes like Roasted Gingered Salmon with Mango Salsa, which has you marinate the salmon in 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (among other things) and add another 1/3 cup lime juice to the salsa. It gives me a little arm workout, too, but not too much (that’s the beauty of leverage). You can get perfectly sized squeezers for lemons and oranges, too—each also matching its fruit’s color.
