This is the 2nd of 2 make-ahead appy recipes I found in a random browsing moment on the same dy I signed up for ZWT-8, Chef Julian Medina was credited & is best-known as the owner of the Yerba Buena, Yerba Buena Perry & Toloache restaurants in NY City. The last ingredient of the sauce was *yuzu juice* & I was clueless. Per Wikipedia, yuzu is an aromatic citrus fruit found in East Asia that resembles a sml grapefruit. The yuzu's flavor is tart (much like a grapefruit w/overtones of mandarin orange). Rarely eaten as a fruit, its aromatic zest is occ used to garnish dishes in Japanese cuisine & its juice is often used as a seasoning (as lemon is used in other cuisines). All that said, I used grapefruit juice to replace the yuzu juice. (10 min was allowed for ingredient prep) *Enjoy!*
