Special equipment: eight 4-ounce ramekins arranged, with some distance between each, in a water bath.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium saucepan, stir together the condensed milk, 1 1/2 cups water and the salt. Bring to a simmer and cook until the ingredients are fully integrated, 5 to 8 minutes.
Add the citrus zests and allow to cool.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, eggs and vanilla.
Pour the condensed milk mixture over the eggs and whisk to blend.
Fill the ramekins about three-quarters each with the liquid and place the water bath in the center of the oven.
Bake until they are almost firm in the center when lightly shaken, 45 to 50 minutes. Refrigerate until cooled.
Serve the ramekins topped with slices of fresh orange and lemon, or by themselves with some cookies.
Recommended wine: Cream Sherry, Port, Tempranillo, Moscato Dasti, Grenache, Albarino
Cream Sherry, Port, and Tempranillo are great choices for Creme Caramel. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. The NV Solera Cream Sherry with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.

With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.
