Spicy, smoky, sweet and sour is the best way I can describe this dish. It could be a Spanish dish except for the black lime, which comes from the middle East. Black limes (sometimes known as Persian limes) are whole dried limes. I find the best way to use them is to pierce them in a few places...
I first made this a few months ago but found the taste not quite to my liking, my lemons are sweet and frankly diluting the juice by the volume suggested in the original recipe (Lemon jelly, classic and strong version! Vegan and gluten free!) left the lemon taste quite vague, so I thought I'd...

Zest the lime. Sprinkle it with the kosher salt, then mince it as fine as possible. Holding...
So, yeah, first off they are slightly green naturally if you use limes. You could use lemons, but mine are quite sweet, so I went with limes but there's also no reason you couldn't use a small orange instead and go for slightly orange coloured and flavoured ones. Really the flavoring is up to...
Thai basil adds an aniseed flavour to the crab cakes and works well with the Scotch bonnet which has a slightly fruity taste. Whether you leave the seeds in the chilli is up to you. The burnt lime adds an interesting slightly smokey taste to the creamy avocado dressing.

I'm going to go ahead and post the recipe but I'm not going to get to make it before the challenge ends unfortunately so no picture. My inspiration for this was a recipe posted on a local grocery store's ad but I'm making some big changes.

I wanted something a little different for my fish tacos tonight than just ordinary Mexican crema. I could not find a recipe that represented the flavors I wanted, so I created my own. It was wonderful! Tangy, slightly sweet and with a touch of heat, the flavor profile of this crema...
This followed the same process as my previous beef jerky recipe, but the seasoning was different. The extra honey tempered the spiciness, giving it a rounded flavor. The tequila and lime notes are subtle, but noticeable.
