Cooking with Lime Crystals
Lime is such a popular ingredient for everything from adding zesty freshness to alcoholic beverages and making plain drinking water not so plain, to brightening the flavor of soups, meat recipes and desserts.
These premium Burma Spice crystals are perfect for your Mexican, Indian or Thai recipes that call for lime. (Use 6 teaspoons of dehydrated lime juice crystals to equal the juice of approximately 1 lime.) Yet they’re so versatile, you can include them in a variety of sauces, soups, desserts, and in your favorite drinks. Try sprinkling a pinch over your favorite corn chips or roasted almonds. The possibilities are practically limitless.
Here are some more great ways to use our gourmet lime crystals:
Marinades and sauces: bring tang with a hint of sweet to your marinades and sauces for pork, beef, seafood and poultry. Use 2 teaspoons of our lime crystals for every tablespoon of lime juice called for in the recipe.
Seafood and poultry: our lime crystals are a fantastic way to bring zest to your seafood and chicken dishes. Add to your marinade or simply sprinkle over the top before baking—and stay tuned for our sweet and spicy tilapia or chicken recipe. We promise it will be swoon-worthy.
