Lime is one of my favorite citrus fruit. I use it especially in making Mexican salsa. I like the fresh flavor of the juice combine with tomatoes, onion, jalapeno pepper and the fresh herb cilantro. After making the salsa I can make my favorite dip the guacamole. Avocados are in season now so it is easy for me to make guacamole.
The zest is also good for flavoring my favorite dessert, leche flan, a custard type of dessert with caramel which originated from Spain. Calamansi rinds can be used as a substitute. (Calamansi or calamondin is the equivalent of lemon in the Philippines.)
In my hometown we used the juice in making seafood ceviche or kilawin. My mom sprinkles the juice on top of steamed fish or mix in fish sauce for dipping.
Lime is also used for making juice as a refreshment, or in mixing drinks like the “mojito”, my favorite cocktail drink.
