A zest grater

Zest is the coloured outer surface of citrus fruit; zesting is the act of scraping the zest from the fruit. A zester is ideal for the task. Some people use a serrated knife instead. Alternatively, the careful application of a fine-toothed grater works well (pictured is a grater specifically designed for zesting). Dried zest is sometimes sold alongside spices.
