This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for details.

We are citrus lovers. Lemon, lime, orange, pineapple – but we think lemon gets all the attention. This article is a love-letter to lime. We love it in savory cooking, sweet baking, condiments (like Papaya Salsa!) and even beverages. With limes on hand, you will be able to make our lime-alicious (yes, we invented a word) recipes.

Cilantro Lime Rice

I was going to call this Green Rice because while this version uses cilantro, it is just as green and delicious when made with parsley, which might be more enticing for some of you. The lime is not just a small addition. It really makes the dish, so be sure to use fresh lime juice for best results. Get the recipe for Cilantro Lime Rice.

Peanut Lime Sauce

Smooth, rich and tangy, this sauce is very easy to make, and quite versatile. You can use it on vegetables, chicken, fish, tofu, meats, pasta – or even just use as a dip for vegetables. For the soy sauce, make sure to use a high-quality naturally brewed for best flavor. The fresh ginger, brown sugar, lime juice, and toasted sesame oil come together for a delectable homemade condiment. Get the recipe for Peanut Lime Sauce.

Chicken Thighs with Lemon Lime Herb Mojo

OK, so a little lemon has snuck into this recipe, but the lime is the star. In this Mojo version I combine fresh lemon and lime juices with parsley, cilantro and scallions. The vibrant green color only hints at the vivid, bright taste. Use with chicken thighs, as we did here, or try with fish or shrimp. Get the recipe for Chicken Thighs with Lemon Lime Herb Mojo.

You can even double the batch and it will keep in the fridge for a few days. This is as thirst quenching as it gets. Get the recipe for Blueberry Limeade.

We think papaya is an underutilized fruit, and while we love them in fruit salad, they are just as versatile in the savory kitchen, like this condiment that combines papaya, cilantro, scallions, lime juice, and minced jalapeño. A little salt and you’re done. Grab the chips, or ladle over grilled chicken, pork, or fish. Get the recipe for Papaya Salsa.
