Add some olive oil, decent balsamic vinegar, and spices to lime juice
and you've got a nice steak marinade...

Or, olive oil, lime juice, oregano, garlic, s&p = nice for roast
chicken.

Not to mention limeade, gimlets, vodka/gin & tonics, margaritas.

Fresh green beans, boiled, buttered, seasoned, then squeeze a few drops
of lime juice on them on the way to the table. Same with steamed
broccoli.

Essential for guacamole, and great for other avocado uses. E.g., a
piece of lettuce, sliced grapefruit sections interleaved with avocado
slices, lime juice on the avocado or in the vinagrette for both. Or,
cut the avocado in half, remove pit, sprinkle salt on, squeeze lime
juice on, eat.

Adds pizazz to fresh salsa. Also to sauteed mushrooms.

Cook slivered almonds in butter in a small frying pan for a couple of
minutes. Push to side, cook calamari steaks, lightly floured and
seasoned. When cooked on both sides, plate, mound almonds on top,
squeeze lime juice over all.

We like having fresh limes so much we planted a second tree -- a
Mexican lime (same as key lime) to go with the Behrs (Bearss?) lime, so
that harvesting seasons overlap.

Don't forget lime daiquiris.

Also, try some Latin recipes. Fajitas come to mind, lime being a
prime ingredient and a great way to marinade tough beef.

Another great lime dish is Ceviche (Seviche, Cebiche). See here for

I love tortilla soup -- my recipe is undoubtedly not authentic, but it's
yummy and easy.....poach a few boneless chicken breasts in 4-6 cups of
broth, then take them out and cook one peeled, chopped potato and 1 or 2
chopped carrots. When the potatoes are soft, mash a few cubes and add them
back in. Cook for a bit, then shred the chicken and add it back to the pot,
along with a handlful of frozen corn kernels or some black beans if you
want. Then dump in a half jar or so of salsa (I love Safeway Select
Chioptle Salsa for this recipe, but if I don't have any, I add whatever
salsa I have, or just canned tomatoes plus a sprinkling of ground chipotle).
Let simmer a bit, then add the juice of half a lime, and taste...adjust
salsa and lime to taste. Plop a handful of cracked tortilla chips into a
bowl, top with some grated Jack or Cheddar, and ladle in the soup. Eat as
is, or top with sour cream and/or avocado.

Here's another....I got this from epicurious.com (it was from Gourmet
magazine), and have made it a few times. I keep some of the butter on hand
in the freezer. It's good as a topping for various fishes, rice, veggies...

Pan-seared Tilapia with Chile Lime Butter
For chile lime butter
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lime zest
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced fresh Thai or serrano chile (preferably red), including
seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
For fish
6 (5- to 6-oz) pieces skinless tilapia fillet or farm-raised striped bass
fillets with skin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Make chile lime butter:
Stir together butter, shallot, zest, lime juice, chile, and salt in a bowl.
Prepare fish:
If using striped bass, score skin in 3 or 4 places with a thin sharp knife
to prevent fish from curling (do not cut through flesh). Pat fish dry and
sprinkle with salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over
moderately high heat until just smoking, then sauté 3 pieces of fish,
turning over once with a spatula, until golden and just cooked through, 4 to
5 minutes, and transfer to a plate. Sauté remaining fish in remaining
tablespoon oil in same manner.

Serve each piece of fish with a dollop of chile lime butter.

Cooks' note:
. Chile lime butter can be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to
room temperature before using.



Makes 6 servings.

Thanks a lot for all these recipes! Tilapia is one of the few fish
that it's safe for my husband to eat... he's seriously allergic to
seafood and fish, with a few exceptions.

Limeade. I don't have a recipe, but it's just lime juice, water and
sugar. Guacamole is good, but that's only half a lime. We buy limes by
the bagfull. My daughter squeezes half a lime on each taco she eats. She
also eats them plain.

If you like guacamole (avocado), use 1/2 lime to one a mashed avocado.
Lime can be added to any fish dishes as a substitute for lemon, if you don't
have a lemon on hand.
I will add a little lime to an opened can of albacore instead of a lemon if
I don't have a lemon on hand.
It is great in a recipe Curried/Lime Shrimp.

Lime is an acquired taste. Use a little less than you would of lemon juice.

Lime meringue pie. Make it the same as you would a lemon meringue pie but
use lime juice and grated peel instead of lemon.

Lime juices makes a great substitute for lemon juice in marinades,
especially when grilling shrimp.

My favorite marinade for chicken kabobs is lime juice, oil, garlic, s/p,
thyme, oregano, and red pepper flakes.

Do you use key limes for your key lime pie? We can get them fresh in the
produce dept. in our supermarkets here (I'm in Houston). Each mesh bag holds
20-30 or so. Below is a very good key lime cookie recipe (posted in this ng
by ***@webtv.net) that uses fresh key limes.

Mary


Key Lime Cookies

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Dash of salt (omit if using salted butter)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 tbs. fresh lime zest*
1/4 cup fresh lime juice"
1 cup white chocolate chips
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped mac nuts
About 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar

* If key limes aren't available, these are just as good using regular limes.
You'll need 4-5 small key limes, or 2-3 large regular.

Sift together dry ingredients and set aside.

Beat butter & sugar until light & fluffy. Add lime zest & juice. Stir in
flour mixture slowly, then add chips and (if desired) nuts.

Shape into small balls (about 1" or less) and roll in cinnamon sugar.

Place 1" apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 13 - 15 minutes at 350
degrees.

This will give you about 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 dozen.

Sounds like it, especially if they are about the size of a ping-pong ball,
and a pale greenish-yellow when ripe. If so, Karen, I'll be right over to
take them off your hands. I'll replace them with lemons or regular limes
if you'd like. ;-)

else are they good for?
Caipirinha! A Brazilian drink of lime juice, a bit of sugar and
Cachaca (that last "c" has the little french squiggle under it --
don't remember what it's called :p), a high-proof liquor made from
sugar cane (*not* rum).

From the Cachaca bottle (we have several, from my husband's trips to
Brazil):
Caipirinha
1 thin-skinned lime
2 tsp sugar
2 measures Cachaca
crushed ice

Cut off the ends of the lime and slice thinly. Place the lime and
sugar in a small glass and, with a wooden pestle, press only the core
of the fruit -- not the peel (this prevents bitterness). Add Cachaca,
mix and fill glass with crushed ice. Garnish with lime.

Most excellent as to whet the appetite before tucking into an orgy of
churrasco/xurrascao. :)

One of the things that I learned from a trip to Mexico recently when I
was there on a Holiday that took us from Monterrey in the North down
to Cuarnavacas was that Mexicans use Limes a lot....big time to
flavour food...and I like the results....very much.....Mexican food is
delicious.....not at all like the distasteful aberrations that
American corporate interests have used to caracterise Mexican foods
for the tastes of anglos.... ..my adaptation or imitation attempt is
to use fresh limes to flavour any tomato sauce dish that is a sauce
for a pasta dish or some kind of seafood gumbo like kind of
thing.......usually adds exactly the kind of edge that I am looking
for ....it is though a sweet edge...for a more ballsy edge to a sauce
I really like to use fresh lemons squeezed into the mix.....

I don't know whether this works for others or even me, but I add lemon and
lime to so many things now-days because I feel that if there are any bad
bacteria in vegetables I buy (I do clean them), that this protects my gut.
Perhaps since some vegetables are even washed in a mixture of
who-knows-what; i.e., chlorine, sulfites, dipped in wax, rolling around on
floors, I feel that adding a half-lemon or half-lime gives me some
protection. I'm sure it doesn't hurt my vitamin intake either. In Hawaii
and other warm climates, don't they actually "cook" fish in lime juice; I
forget the local name for it -- it's been too long since I lived there to
remember. But when I say 'cook,' I mean 'marinate,' which actually does
cook the fish. This is a real crowd-pleaser.

Ok, Siobhan, I haven't been able to get those cracklin' wings out of my mind
since you mentioned them in the lime thread. How have I gone this long
without hearing about them before?

I've got a batch in the oven now (along with some honey/soy wings in a
separate pan for my 4-year-old, who requested that her wings be "sticky").
I can't wait to try them! And I hope that nobody in my hometown of Buffalo
finds out that I put *flour* on chicken wings -- they'll never let me back
in!

Glad to see you again! Those wings of yours are fantastic ... time for me
to make a batch. It's been too long. We both love them so much, they
never make it to the hot sauce.

To anyone who's listening, Pat created the method, which is 90% of the
success of this recipe. Siobbhan (sp?) and I have just put together
different coating mixtures.

A round of applause for Pat!

Actually, my coating isn't really that different from Damsel's. I just
found a spice mix that uses all the ingredients she used (though maybe in
different proportions) that I really like (Penzey's Adobo spice mix is
great for lots of things). But yes, the success of the wings comes from
Cryamber. :)

....and they were darn good! The 4-year-old ate them, too (without the
sauce). The 7-yr-old declined any chicken adn just ate salad. Loved the
sauce w/ lime juice!
Great! Another convert! What spices did you end up using? Damsel's? Or did
you happen to have Penzey's Adobo spice blend (which is pretty much
Damsel's spices already mixed together)? :)

Ok, Siobhan, I haven't been able to get those cracklin' wings out of my mind
since you mentioned them in the lime thread. How have I gone this long
without hearing about them before?
Silly me, I googled this site with "crackling wings" and only this
thread came up. Finally figured out to try "cracklin' wings" and there
they were....

Heh, I did the same thing. Turned out I already had the recipe in
my "must try" file...

The only lime recipe I know is key lime pie... it's delicious, but I
can't make it EVERY week! What else are they good for? I tried putting
fresh lime juice into a salad dressing but it came out horrid.

You takes a chicken, a mandolin ('V'-slicer) and a lime. You thinly slice
up 1/2 of the lime and insert the lime slices in various places under
the skin of the chicken, putting the other half of the lime up the bird's
bum. I add a small onion into the cavity as well, or half a large one if
I have one laying about.

Oh, before you start rinse/wash the bird, inside and out and pat dry. And
don't forget to season it with salt and pepper - both inside and out.

Now roast the bird...I like to use the rotissierrie on them instead.

Lime zest and juice goes well with pork meat as well.

Lime juice can really improve the flavour of some Chicken Stock based
Soups.

Lime juice works well in Salsa too.

I like to cut the jicama into slices or wedges, brush with lime juice and
sprinkle with *hot* chile (not chili) powder. Cayenne works great,
although I use a light hand with it.

This combo is also a tasty addition to anything avocado.

As an aside, there's a group of commercially prepared spice mixes of
this general combination. They typically come in little cardboard
shakers, much like disposable picnic salt shakers, usually colored
bright green or red. Most are imported from Mexico and include
powdered chile, some sort of dried (or maybe synthetic) citrus
component, and salt. I know this may not appeal to natural food
zealots, but some of these spice sprinkles (there are many) are pretty
tasty and have a zing I can't quite replicate with the real deal.
Maybe it's from msg ...or some other white powder. ;)

Off Original Topic: thinly sliced jicama is a very good substitute for
water chestnuts in Chinese recipes.

Better than canned water chestnuts. If you can find fresh ones, and
are willing to go to the trouble of peeling and slicing them, fresh
water chestnuts are really subtle and wonderful.

Here's what I do with fresh limes:

2 parts triple sec
3 parts freshly-squeezed lime juice, strained
6 parts tequila (yes, I said 6 parts)

Shake vigorously with ice 128 times and strain into a chilled
and salted cocktail glass. You should get a pretty good workout,
and ideally end up with little shards of ice in the glass.

An easy way to salt the glass is to rub a spent lime half on
the rim, pour a small amount of kosher salt into the palm of
your hand, and then dip the rim into the salt.

I use either cheap triple sec and Cuervo White, or Cointreau
and Sauza Hornitos.

Juice of half a fresh lime is an essential ingredient squeezed atop

Try Frangelico and lime juice on ice. Add a little water if you find i
too strong. It sounds like an unlikely combo, but it's very refreshing
rather like gin and tonic.

Happy sipping

Now place you penis inside, and go for it. Ignore all other
claims....this is the closest thing to a REAL vagina, bar none  :-)
Note: Different sensations can be obtained by using different cuts of
beef. Veal is good but some people
  may have moral objections to using veal. I prefer rib-eye as it
feels a little grittier.
Stop that, Gregory, you're making me hungry AND horny! Do you think
you'd be interested in a nice benevolent butt plug??
Isn't it nice of his wife to indulge him in his homosexual fantasies.
