Pickled Red Onions

Pickled onions

Cebollas en Escabeche

Makes 1cup

 

INGREDIENTS

1 small red onion, peeled
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Salt

 You really need to use fresh squeezed lime juice for this – nothing in a jar!

DIRECTIONS

With a knife or food processor, thinly slice the onions.  Scoop into a non-reactive bowl.  Pour boiling water over them, count to 10, then immediately pour the onions into a strainer.  Shake off all the water, pour the onions back into the bowl, pour on the lime juice and stir in the 1 1/2 teaspoons salt.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

These will last for a week or more in the refrigerator. (I usually make a big batch and they last weeks)
