It's been called the world’s sexiest fruit and it’s a darling of chefs, yet you may never have heard of it.
So brace yourself for the taste of 2016: yuzu, a rare and costly citrus fruit from Japan, which is predicted to become as popular here as oranges.
It tastes like a cross between a lemon, mandarin and grapefruit and is finally being accepted into Western cuisine, where it is being used to flavour everything from beer and chewing gum to vinegar and cocktails.
It is widely stocked in Asian food shops and is expected to hit supermarket shelves early next year.
Yuzu looks like a tangerine and tastes similar to a floral lime.
It has three times more vitamin C than a lemon, which makes this dish super-healthy.
