The flesh of citrus fruit is often cut out in segments for salads and to garnish savory dishes. If possible, use seedless fruit.
Cut away the zest, pith and skin. Slide the knife down one side of a segment, cutting it from the skin. Cut down the other side and pull out the section.
Repeat with the remaining segments, turning back the flaps of skin like the pages of a book.
