Soooo I was totally inspired by my frozen key lime pies I shared on Tuesday that I just had to go and make a round up all about… you guessed it: key limes! I love them. Yes, they are similar to regular limes but there is just something about them that makes them special. It’s almost like they have a little bit of a floral smell/taste to them that I really enjoy. Does anyone else pick up on that? I dunno it might just be me! BUT, while creating this… amazing if I do say so myself, “ultimate guide” to key limes I never thought they were so versatile. I mean key lime salmon… hello! I think you might be seeing more key lime creations from me in the future! You’ve been warned.

Drooooool! I love that tartness they give too. That’s one thing I think is gretly under utilized by home cooks: acid. Whenever I see a marinade recipe or go to create one myself I always put a splash of vinegar or a squeeze of lemon. It’s like salt, it brings out the flavor of the dish! Just a little restaurant tip from one former Chef straight to your eyeballs! {Sorry, I’m in a weird mood today, it should pass… hopefully.} ANYways, which recipe are your trying first?? I think key lime mojitos are calling my name!
