Frequently, I post a recipe calling for Fiore Olive Oil.  I first was exposed to this product last June while visiting Rockland, ME.We were at a lobster bake, and had the pleasure of meeting the owners. I won two bottles as a door prize and since then, I’ve been hooked.

I these products a lot. My favorite has been the blood orange, however the lime flavor in this recipe, sounds delicious. If the intensity is anything like the blood orange, it is. I’m going to have to order some new flavors. You could substitute any flavor or brand you want, but I have been more than happy with Fiore and their mail-order is good. This recipe is from Rachel, Fiore’s Master Baker and lover of EVOO. Thanks, Rachel.
