“Grilled salmon marinated in orange juice, lime juice, tequila, and habanero peppers, then served with a habanero-lime butter. Remove the seeds from the peppers to tame the heat. You may wish to wear rubber gloves while chopping peppers to protect your hands from the spicy oils.” - by Mike Smith
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- In a bowl, stir together vegetable oil, orange juice, 3 tablespoons lime juice, tequila, 1 tablespoon lime zest, 1 tablespoon habanero pepper, and garlic.

"Wow this was probably among the top-three fish dishes I've tried. The Habaneros are only sold in bulk at my grocer so I chose to make several recipes this week using them. The blend of flavors is diff..." See moreicult to describe but I can say that it was a a mixture of creamy sweet and pleasing spice. The left over butter mixture can also be spooned over chicken. My compliments!"
"This recipe was good but, more than anything, I am positively addicted to the habenero lime butter. I make a bunch and re-refridgerate it in an old butter tub so that I always have it on hand. I put..." See more it on corn on the cob and other fresh veggies...even on cornbread and biscuits."
"This recipe is amazing! I have been looking to add more fish to my home cooking, but have always been bored by salmon. This sounded interesting b/c we like spicy in my house, and it was perfect! I act..." See moreually forgot the butter in the fridge when we started eating and the salmon was still good on its own, but then I remembered the butter and WOW! I plan to do what some others have mentioned and make a big batch of butter to use with other things. Really do be careful with the peppers. My fingers are still burning a day later. Thanks for the recipe, Mike Smith!"
