Except squeezing on tacos, mixing drinks, adding to cabbage slaw, making sorbet, making limeade/lime popsicles.

Lemons are good for making preserves or sweet/sour lemons/lemon peel.

I'm with Billy. Lemons are more versatile and palatable.

That said, ceviche, Mexi sashimi, Pacifico.... lime is the king in the Californias

My homemade lemon-lime-cello is one month into brewing. Will report back in 30 days. drunk

Lemon is the most versatile citrus, by far

Depends on what you are making. Lemons are better for Eurocentric food and salads. Limes are better for Asian and Latin cuisine. Lemons are softer, while limes are more angular cookin It's amazing what acidity does for food in general.
Peruvian pisco sours and cuisine in general is light years better than Chilean. The egg white takes it next level. Chilean food is probably the most boring food in the Western hemisphere toilet

compared to limes, lemons are the missionary only, no hair pulling, go easy dance partner of the citrus world.

I almost got the Chilean pisco to piss off my Limea friend....

she made causas the other night! weird with tuna but gooood.

I use a little lime with the lemon for the ceviche....it is milder and
helps the onion and jalapeno stand out more against the fish.

mix in two types of maiz....toasted cancha and par boiled choclo


don't the Chileans produce a lot of beef?


It’s like the GZA coming on after U-God

I guess this is an aspect of the euro-centric thing about lemons, but think of all of the desserts and bakery stuff that call for lemons and lemon peel

Im not aware of any equivalent with limes

And in cocktails, lime peel is not very useful, whereas lemon peel is very useful

Limes are all about acidity, whereas lemons have applications way beyond that

50-50 for me, depends on the application, but if I had to pick one it would be the lime.

Here's a good party drink we used to make when the Enterprise Fish Co. crew used to do the Dodger busses.

Yucca Flats
In a 1 Gal. glass jar add...
6 lemons (sliced in half)
6 limes (sliced in half)
2 - 750ml bottles of Quervo Gold (or whatever tequila of choice)
1/2 cup sugar
Fill to top with ice
Screw lid on
Wrap with towel and begin shaking
Good for parties 'cause everyone gets a shake at it.
When the towel is frozen to the jar it's ready

Nectar of the gods
I ended up in Dodger jail one time because of this elixer drunk drunkdrunkdrunk

I'd argue that you could sub out lemon in all of these applications to decent-excellent results

Indeed, ceviche and asian flavor profiles had me reconsidering my statement. I love lime, but I find myself using lemon more, and like someone said, I could sub out several instances that call for lime with lemon, but not vice-versa.

That being said, if I could only do one, it would probably have to be lemons. Especially if you consider the application of different types of lemons.

I spend a week in Peru for work once a year, and nearly every meal I have is excellent, or at least very good. Everything from budget road side to high end.
Chile produces amazing raw ingredients, especially seafood and beef, but they dont no how to season it. Aside from salt, mayo and ketchup. Its a travesty. Im sure if you had Anthony Bourdaines roledex youd eat amazing food, but as for what you are likely to eat . . . Meh.

Thats a fair statement. Id rather squeeze a lemon over a taco than add lime to a shrimp pasta dish. But I'd rather not have to choose just one in the first place. In a general sense, I see lemons more as complimenting other flavor elements, such as in Italian food or pastries, while limes are more of a bold flavor element in and of themselves cookin

Limes for sure.

It's Limo in Portuguese. It took me a while to discover Limo is not a lemon, but a lime.

Lemonades in Brazil are made with limes 99% of the time.
