VERSATILE, TART, AND SUNNY!
You can salt a chicken two ways, depending on how much time you have. If you’re going to cook in the next hour or two (up to 6 hours), make a brine - add ¼ cup Caravel Gourmet's Lime Sea Salt
for every 1 cup hot water (dissolve the salt) and 1 cup ice water. Take the pieces of chicken you’re going to cook, and add them to the brine. If you’re going to cook 6 hours or more away, then coat the pieces in a healthy sprinkle of Caravel Gourmet's Lime Sea Salt
, wrap them back up, and put them in the fridge.
Sautéed Lime Peas.
With either fresh or frozen peas, add to a pan with a pat of butter and sauté on low for a few minutes, until the peas are a bright green color and tender to the touch. Add a bit more butter, and a bit of garlic. Don’t add Caravel Gourmet's Lime Sea Salt
until you’re ready to serve - this will dehydrate the peas, especially if they’re frozen.
Cucumber Lime Salad.
Give this one a bit of time and it will reward you. Chill your cucumbers first, then slice them into ⅛” discs. Lightly salt them with Caravel Gourmet's Lime Sea Salt
, and toss. Let them sit covered in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then drain and toss with rice or white vinegar for a tasty, refreshing treat!
Grilled Lime Shrimp.
Preheat your grill to medium heat, then mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of paprika, and a tablespoon of Caravel Gourmet's Lime Sea Salt
. Toss the shelled shrimp in that mixture, then grill each side of the shrimp for 2-3 minutes, until opaque.
Asparagus with Lime & Butter.
Prep the asparagus by trimming off the thick ends and rinsing in cold water. In an iron skillet (or the heaviest one you have with a lid), heat the butter till it starts to bubble, then add the asparagus, and shake the pan to coat it in the butter. Cover the pan and cook on medium for 3 minutes, checking to make sure it’s not burning. Uncover and cook a few more minutes until the asparagus is bright green, then add Caravel Gourmet's Lime Sea Salt
