Anybody else never cook with lemons or limes?

I never understood why people put lime and lemon juice in their chicken. Just salt pepper and a little garlic and it will taste phenomenal

    Other people do it because they like the taste.

  • Anytime you marinate something you want there to be some acid to help tenderise the meat.  Plus, it tastes good.  A fresh squeeze of lemon juice of a piece of salmon, arctic char or halibut also helps wake up the natural flavour of the fish.

    It also tastes phenomenal with a little citrus, or a good barbecue sauce, or a good marinara sauce, or numerous other combinations of flavors.

    I use all that plus lemon. I slice the lemon crossways into very thin slices and put the slices under the skin. Gives it an awesome flavor jump.

  • No. Besides, I don't see adding lemon or lime directly in Nigerian food. Yes, I have tasted lemon flavoured chicken, it is nice but I don't think it was needed.

    One day I will learn how to make highly flavoured chicken with onion, tomato and big red pepper garnish on it.

    Shrimp scampi requires both lemons and lemon juice.
