  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Coat the ribs heavily with salt. This brings out the fat.
  3. Grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness. Remove cooked ribs to a large glass serving dish, and squeeze lime juice over them. Serve immediately.

I remember having these once before and I've been looking for the recipe everywhere! They are salty, not for those looking for BBQ sauce style ribs, but with the lime they are wonderfully diffe...

"At first glance you'll say 'whoa! that's way too salty for me to try...' but stick with it" -- You are absolutely right and WHOA it was way to salty for us!

I give them a four. I wont make them very often though. I am a saltaholic so I liked them. The lime gives it a unique twist and kills alot of the salt flavor anyway. Kind of reminded me of a rib...

You absolutely must use rock salt for this recipe. Not just coarse salt. This is known as kosher rock salt or Ice Cream salt. If you use table salt, salt from a salt grinder or anything finer it...
