Cilantro Lime Sauce

It’s beginning to look, and feel, a lot like summer!  And you know what that means – outdoor cooking!  We love grilling, except of course when it gets over 100 degrees, then we opt to eat something cool and crisp in the comfort of our air conditioned home!  But since we are not quite there yet, here is a super tasty Cilantro Lime sauce that you can make in advance, such as early in the morning, then all you need to do is grill up some fish and you’re on your way to pure happiness!  This tangy lime sauce will really highlight your fish with a burst of incredible flavor!
Cilantro Lime Sauce

1 small fresh jalapeno pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Remove any seeds and ribs from jalapeno, finely mince, and add to a small bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir with a fork to combine.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 2 days before serving.

Grill your favorite fish, such as swordfish or halibut.  On a serving tray, spoon about 1 tablespoon on each of the pieces of cooked fish and serve at once.  Pass the remaining sauce at table. Makes enough for 4 servings, can be easily doubled.

Now get ready to sink your teeth into the delicate combination of succulent grilled fish swimming in a tangy mouth-watering sauce!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
