  • Why not? It's just a different flavoring....

  • I'd give it a shot. It'll probably change the flavor a bit, but you might like it. I do that with recipes sometimes. Sometimes I like the result, others I don't. Try it and see what happens. Worst case, you go get pizza. lol

  • I would prefer it like that personally. Not a lemon fan unless its in a sweet treat, but I love me some limes.

  • Personally I'd say NO!! I hate the taste of lime & LOVE lemons... so it's really up to you ;o)

  • It would depend on the recipe. I like lemon with a lot of the fish that I make (flounder, tilapia, salmon, grouper), but will use lime on shrimp.

  • I never put lemon in/on my fish. But you can if you want. Will taste different
