Using stand mixer: Slowly (low speed) whisk the egg whites till foamy then add in lemon juice slowly at the side.  Add sugar in a stream, slowly at the side of the bowl while the whites are being whipped; do not dump it in the center. Increase speed to medium, then to medium-high when foam become smaller and increase in size. Whisk till firm peak.
3. Mixed mandarin orange together with the whisked egg whites.
4. Spread the mixture onto the pie crust evenly. Put it into the oven immediately, don’t let it sit.
5. Preheat the oven at 170 degree Celsius and bake for another 10-15mins or till golden brown. (as shown in the photo)
