Seasonal Ideas - TIPS & HINTS

It's a fabulous idea to always have a jar of both lime pickle and preserved lemons in the cupboard. They add an instant flavour punch to many dishes and can turn a few sad old ingredients into an exciting, fresh & beautiful meal.

  • Add preserved lemon or lime rind to a bread stuffing and let the exotic flavours and aromas infuse the chicken before roasting or grilling.
  • Add Lime Pickle or finely chop preserved lemon and scatter through salads, or add to mayonnaise and serve with chargrilled salmon or chicken.
  • Add finely chopped Lime Pickle to steamed cous cous with a scattering of tasted almonds, currants and coriander, or finely chop and rub over fish fillets before baking.
  • Finely chip 1 or 2 tablespoons of lime pickle and add it to brown rice with roughly chopped parsley and finely diced cucumber. Serve with roast chicken or grilled snags. (Sausages).
  • Add finely chopped Lime Pickle to gremolata for a spicy twist to add to rich meaty stews.

      Hi

      thank you for sharing this recipe I look forward to trying it.

      You have a nice interesting hub, without many views I suspect.

      May I make a friendly suggestion, take the 'friendly guru' off your titles, when people search for a recipe they use words such as chicken or what ever, your titles could be stopping you getting traffic right across your hubs.

      I made the same mistake and finally sorted the problem.

      regards

      Tony
