Lime Salt Souffle

Method

Combine lime pure and corn flour, place into small pot and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, so the corn flour cooks out. Remove from heat and mix in fresh lime.

to assemble

Pre heat oven to 180deg Celsius. Place the egg whites into an electric mixer and whisk on the highest speed, when the egg whites have come together (very soft peaks) add the sugar and continue to whisk until semi firm peaks. In a stainless steel bowl place the cream pat and lime base mix really well. Place 1/3 of the egg whites into the cream pat lime base whisk really well to make sure it is incorporated well. Then gently fold the rest of the egg whites into the mix. Fill the moulds to the top and bake at 180C for approx. 10-12 minutes.
