fresh lime juice

This was really a great marinade. It makes a lot so it will go a long ways. I used it on pork chops (marinated for 8 hours) as opposed to fish and it really turned out wonderfully on the grill. I did omit the tequila (didn't have any) and I did add a Tbl of brown sugar to sweeten it just slightly. Will use again! Would also recommend it for use with chicken.
I marinaded for an hour prior to baking some Tilapia and broiling some shrimp. The flavor didn't penetrate the meat very well and my family was a bit turned off that the fish and shrimp were green. The flavor of the marinade was ok, but I won't be making this again.
really good, but took a while to assemble
AMAZING! I used it on tilapia and shrimp (marinated for about 12 hours) and the flavor was incredible - really fresh and tangy, but not too overwhelming. Would probably be just as good without the tequila. Five stars!
Outstanding marinade...made as directed. Used it with talipia and shrimp and then grilled them. Put in warm flour tortillas and topped with Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa (from this site)...excellent! (Was worried that marinade would be too strong because I marinated seafood for 3 hours...no worries...it was perfect. Didn't have problem with fish turning green, either.)
Excellent marinade! Used it for grilling shrimp! Used lemon juice instead of lime and it worked quite well!
Thanks for a wonderful marinade! The flavor was just right-tangy, spicy and not over powering at all. Tried it on shrimp kabobs and cod fillets, then grilled them both. Made for a light and refreshing meal. Enjoyed with a New Zeland White wine and Maui Sunset, what a perfect night.
No time to marinate so I roasted fish kebobs in the sauce @ 375 for 25 minutes. Brilliant! I know it wold be even better grilled.
