Very quick and easy. Yummy on the grill or baked.

This was very good. Had a good flavor but next time I will probably cut back to 1-2 limes. It was a little strong for me. Served with Spanish Rice and a bowl of guacamole (and chips) I mixed up from the new show on Food Network Nigella Feasts. Which I will also cut back on the lime in that next time as well. It was enjoyed by all. Thanks for the great recipe.
