Fresh and delicious cilantro lime sauce that will have you craving tacos in no time at all!
I love the fresh flavor of cilantro.Fish tacos are always a favorite around here,
I was playing around in the kitchen to come up with a sauce with cilantro that doesn’t involve ingredients I don’t usually have on hand. (namely tomatillos, lots of green sauces call for tomatillos which I love, but this sauce uses items I already have on hand all the time)
Fish tacos are always a favorite, I often make them with shrimp or scallops.
I made this Cilantro Lime Sauce and enjoy it on so many things, like pasta, vegetables and well…
chicken, beef you name it,
this sauce is irresistible.
This sauce is great on TACOS
any kind of tacos….Beef, Chicken, Fish, Shrimp, Scallop you name it this is a sauce that is perfect on them.
It’s really easy to whip up and lasts all week in the fridge so enjoy it all week long, if it lasts until then.
Luckily, I had the ingredients on hand and could whip up a batch really quick for lunch.
I had scallops in the freezer and quickly thawed them in cold water.
Minutes later this is what I had for lunch…
I grilled the scallops in my grill pan, heated corn tortillas, added shredded red cabbage and topped it off with the Cilantro Lime Sauce, it was so delicious.
I was so glad I had enough scallops…I ate three tacos.
