I am not sure how this came out bland yet over overpoweringly tasting of lime. Next time I will cut the amount lime in half and add some salt and pepper, and cumin if I am using it on chicken, or a tsp of steak sauce on beef. I will also leave the meat in the marinade for an hour or more because just dipping it even after giving the mix a good whisking didnt leave any flavor but lime.
