Yesterday, I realized that my post containing references to key lime pie probably meant nothing to many of my readers. A native New Englander, I first encountered key lime pie on a drive south from Coral Gables, where I went to college. Stopping off for a bite to eat (so to speak) I tried a piece of key lime pie. I became a lifetime devoteé. I’d go so far to call myself an amateur conniseur. With that in mind, I’m offering up a few recipes for key lime that you might want to consider trying. They’re relatively easy, so don’t consider it a major undertaking!
The first one I offer is a video. The Italian meringue gives it an added flair and is optional. You could just as well give it a whipped cream topping. It does give the pie authority, I think.
Here’s another from Joe’s Stone Crabs Restaurant in Miami. I think it probably tastes very much like the first recipe here. Try them both and let me know!
Not to overload you, but I thought should include this one that is described as the easiest.
The truth is, as you’ve undoubtedly figured out, they are all quite similar. It will ending up being a matter of taste for you to decide which you prefer. I think kl pie is a perfect topper for a fish dinner.
