key limes regularly stocked at super saver

key limes are about 1.89/# at super saver right now. that means if you want

to buy one to see what they taste like, it would maybe cost you a dime.

key limes are much more tart and intense in flavor than the supermarket standard lime, with strong hints of lemon. you might be more familiar with the flavor in desserts, but key limes glow in savory marinades and dressings. i'm sure they'd sparkle in a cocktail.

this is a very simple marinade for shrimp: one third key lime juice, one third olive oil, one third sesame oil; toss in red pepper flakes at your own discretion.
i marinated shrimp in that, and then grilled the shrimp-- while heating the leftover marinade in a saucepan, and then tossing some cooked noodles in that warm dressing. i served the noodles with the shrimp.
