  1. Take a clean lemon or lime and, with a sharp knife, cut it into thin slices, discarding the end pieces.

  3. Cut through the rind in the middle of each piece and gently pull into 2 wings without breaking into 2 pieces.
  4. A piece of parsley may be placed in the centre to represent the 'butterfly's' body.

  6. They are served on bread-crumbed, fried or grilled meats, such as veal escalopes, and on several fish dishes.
