Chilled Key Lime Mousse
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Garnish with zest just before serving.
Equipment: Ten 8-ounce ramekins or 2 1/2-quart soufflé dish
Tips: When we call for citrus zest (i.e., 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest) we are referring to the finely grated outer rind (not including the white pith) of the citrus fruit. Use a microplane grater or the smallest holes of a box grater to grate the zest. In some cases we call for long strips or threads of zest. To get long strips, peel the citrus with a vegetable peeler. To remove long threads, use a 5-hole citrus zester or remove long strips of zest with a vegetable peeler, then use a knife to cut into very thin strips.
The eggs in this recipe are not cooked. Consuming raw eggs poses a higher risk of foodborne illness, especially in people with weakened immune systems, children and the elderly. To minimize the risk, use pasteurized-in-the-shell eggs in place of regular eggs--look for them in the refrigerator case near other whole eggs.
