I always do this!! I cook dinner, we love the recipe, I add it to my posting que, then I never post it and it remains in 'edit' mode for several weeks. This isn't really that big of a deal, but I have a number of summer posts remaining and we are basically in fall.
Well, we're still grilling, so maybe you are too! This was a light and fresh meal that I cooked up for friends one night. It was an impromptu visit and I looked at my odd abundance of lime and cilantro and decided that it would be the theme for the night.
Unfortunately, the one thing that I forget to do when I add the recipe to my que is write down what I thought about the meal. Oops. I need to start doing that. I do recall that everyone really liked it (or at least everyone finished their meal). And, I recall adding it to the que that night with a note that we should use it for bbq's more often.
Lime Cilantro Marinade

- 1/2 cup cilantro
- 6 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 T honey
- 1 T olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
Lime Cilantro Corn
- Mix all marinade ingredients in large bowl.
- Pour over chicken and turn to coat.
- Cover chicken and chill, marinating for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
- Grill chicken until no longer pink in the middle.
- 4 ears of corn, shucked (preferably fresh, but frozen can be used as well)
- 2 bell peppers, seeded and diced
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1/8-1/4 cup cilantro
- Cut corn kernels off of cob.
- Saute onions and bell peppers in olive oil until soft.
- Add corn and cook 5 more minutes.
- Turn off heat, squeeze lime juice over corn, add cilantro and lightly toss.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
I definitely plan on making this one. We are obsessed with lime and cilantro. Yum! ;)ReplyDelete
