We tried this tonight for your Football Conference win. Love it.citrusy, tart and wonderful. Can't wait to try as a marinade as suggested by others.
Garlic lovers, here's a wonderful sauce perfect for marinades. I had expected it to be thicker, to use as a condiment sauce over steak, but I think this is more suited as a marinade. Use to marinate scallops or fish for 15 minutes prior to grilling or baking. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Chocolatl! Made as "Slice of Lime Babe" of the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes for ZWT5 Caribbean region.
This was a very nice garlic sauce that went well on pork chops. Made half the recipe for four boneless pork chops and marinated in the refrigerator for two hours. The garlic does mellow a lot in the lime juice and all the flavors meld well together. I like my meat "well done" on the grill and my pork chops were still very juicy and tender. Will make this again! Thank you Chocolatl for sharing this recipe with us. Made and reviewed for ZWT5, Bodacious Brickhouse Babes team.
