My husband is a producer/editor to TV.
Sometimes he produces and edits shows about relationships. Sometimes his work is car or beer commercials, and sometimes it’s really bad (and by really bad, I mean really good) reality TV, but his current project is a show about pizza restaurants in Brooklyn.
I hear snippets here and there about how each restaurant makes their “pies,” and the ingredients they pride themselves on. I was immediately inspired upon hearing that one of these pizza joints’ most prized toppings are red onions that have marinated in lime juice for 15 minutes. Yum!
I just had to give it a go.
I changed it up a bit and marinated shallots in lime juice, and I took the marinating time about a week further!
That’s right, a whole week! Well, at least 24 hours, and a week for even more intense flavor.
These are absolutely divine — the acidity of the citrus adds a tangy flavor, takes the bite out of the onion, softens them a bit, and creates a pretty, pinkish hue.
