Garlic Lime Marinade

  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic

Skirt Steak

  • 1.5 lbs skirt steak
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper



Garlic Lime Marinade

  • Put the olive oil, lime juice, and minced garlic in a small bowl. Mix together well and set aside.

Marinating Skirt Steak

  • Lay your skirt steak flat and sprinkle with a good dose of salt and pepper on each side.
  • Place in a airtight container with lid. Pour garlic lime marinade over the skirt steak, making sure all sides get some marinade.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight.

Grilled Skirt Steak

  • Remove your skirt steak from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
  • Get your grill nice and hot, make sure the coals underneath are nice and evenly spread out.
  • Put your room temperature skirt steak on the grill, making sure to lay flat. Grill quickly 2 - 3 minutes each side, about 5 minutes total until they have a nice brown and bits of char on each side. Thicker steaks may require a little more time each side. Remove from grill.


  • Slice the skirt steak thin and top with a little of the guacamole, pickled onions, and cilantro. Savor the deliciousness!


This garlic lime grilled skirt steak stands alone just fine but add in the fire roasted poblano guacamole and the quick pickled onions and it transforms into a masterpiece! Easy to do for dinner or a party.
