To give your fillet of veal the unique flavour of black tea.

Wash the lime well and grate the peel. Then mix the lime peel and the sea salt and coat the fillet of veal with it (leave for about an hour). Ideally steam the fillet of veal in a wok and add the tea leaves. Turn down the heat and allow to cook for around 15 minutes then wrap in aluminium foil.
