Kaffir Lime Leaves [moved from Austin board]

I have a small shipment headed my way and want to make the most of them.
What's your favorite dish to make with Kaffir lime leaves?

I did a search on the recipe board and didn't find much.

    Scallops Wrapped in Kaffir Lime Leaves is a classic.

    here is a recipe by Jean-Georges Vongerichten:

      How about that saffron sauce Catherine Zeta Jones character made in the No Reservations movie?

        Besides adding to curries, I add them to coconut rice while it's steaming to serve with satay chicken, and I like to infuse creme brulee with their flavor. You can make a Mexican-style tea of the leaves and some canela.

          I make a kaffir lime ice cream. Just steep it in the cream before making your base.
