Posted By Sarina On October 10, 2010 @ 12:10 am In Featured | Comments Disabled

Top 5 Recipes Featuring Lemons (and Limes!) on TriniGourmet.com [1]

1. Crisp Lemon Chicken (recipe) [2]

Distinct herbal and citrus flavours make this roast a standout!

2. Sarina’s Sparkling Ginger-Lime Shandy (recipe) [3]
Bubbly and sweet with a slight tang of lemon and beer. An unusual refreshment that is sure to garner raves!
3. Pasta with Basil, Tomatoes and Lemon Zest (recipe) [4]

It takes only minutes to put together and the end result is bursting with flavour, satsfying, and, with primarily fresh ingredients undeniably, healthy!

4. Basil Lemonade (recipe) [5]

One of the things that I love about adding basil to beverages is the muted herbal flavour that it imparts. This lemonade is no exception. It softens the acidity of the lemon/lime juice, and also mellows out the overt sweetness.

5. Iced Lemon Ginger Tea (recipe) [6]

This drink is wonderfully refreshing and has a soft muted tone, thanks to the use of honey. Not only does the honey take the sharpness off the ginger and lemon, it also makes this drink especially soothing on the throat.
