The blackened salmon does sound nice.

We went to a Mexican restaurant on the way home from finally having our "gasp" Christmas with the kids. ( due the Norovirus incapacitating each of them in turn over the holidays and beyond). The food was excellent, I had my fav chili relleno with a tamale, and an enchilada. DH had pork burritos that looked "killer". But, the best part of the meal was the margarita I ordered, ( I would usually have beer) It was the best margarita I have ever had, not acidy and so flavorful. The waitress said it was "all fresh", what does that mean...... They just distilled the tequila in the back room? Lol! Whatever, it was delish, I must find out how it was prepared, especially after the bill came and the price was revealed $10.50!!! Lol! Now I know why the price wasn't on the menu!

Fresh lime and/or lemon juice, not the nasty bar mix or bottled stuff.

It's easy to make really good Margaritas at home. After some experimenting, we have concluded that we like them best with half lemon juice and half lime juice as well as triple sec, not Cointreau. They are very nice and smooth with Cointreau, but they have a tiny "bite", that we like, with the triple sec.

Taxlady, it was really smooth......and she did say it was fresh lime juice, I'm thinking there could have been some lemon too. It had a taste I couldn't ID , not quite floral, but something along that line. I will be doing some research. "Hiccup" lol ;-)

agreed about the limes or lemons. fresh is not only so much better, but if really fresh and in season, lemons and especially limes can have that floral quality.

The floral quality might have been the orange flavour from Cointreau.
