    Finely grate the lime rind onto a chopping board (reserve the lime for juicing). Use a sharp knife to chop the lime rind. Place in a small bowl with the salt and stir to combine. Juice the reserved lime into a large bowl. Add the oil, chilli and 1/2 tsp salt mixture. Set aside for 5 mins to develop the flavours.
