We love a good microplane for zesting lemon and other citrus–it works great for minced garlic too. But if you don’t have one on hand, simply peel and finely chop or mince as in the video above. Be sure to avoid the pith (the white part between the skin and the fruit) when peeling the lemon as it will add a bitter taste.
