  • 4 Tbsp olive oil

Condiments & Seasonings

  • 2 limes zested and juiced
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped green onion or shallot
  • 1/2 jalapeƱo chile seeded and minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 tsp good quality sea salt


  • Press garlic through a garlic press and put it in a jar or cup. Add the lime zest, juice, and minced green onion or shallot, and minced chili.
  • Toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a small dry skillet until fragrant, then transfer to a plate to cool. Grind in a spice grinder or with a small mortar and pestle, then add to juice mixture.
  • Whisk in the oil and mustard and add the chopped cilantro and let stand at least 15 minutes before using.
  • For a quicker preparation and slightly more emulsified dressing, toss all ingredients (roughly chopped) into a blender and pulse to combine.
