Do I just grate the side of a lemon??

Am making Jamies chicken & cous cous. Just hope it turns out better than the chicken and lentil hotpot which was rubbish

Yes - but give it a good wash with a bit of a scrub - lemons (except organic ones) are covered with a thin layer of wax to preserve them better.

you want the yellow bit, not the white bit underneath. ie don't grate down to the flesh/fruit.

If you don't need to use the juice, you can pop the 'zested' lemon onto a shelf in the fridge. It seriously freshens up the fridge and gets rid off 'I should have thrown that away a fortnight ago' type smells.
