    FloridaGrl's Note:

    A great marinade, dip for chips or veggies, & a sauce for meats. I would eat this stuff on just about anything. I usually dump everything into the blender and puree it until it is smooth.

      I used this fantasic sauce as marinade for Mahi Mahi. The fish was in the marinade for @ one hour, then grilled on a George Foreman grill. Simply divine! Having lived in Miami for many years, I appreciate these garlicky Cuban mojos but this one is the best! Thank you from another Florida Girl! The cole slaw in the picture is Barefoot Contessa's Blue Cheese Cole Slaw.

      I may have no friends left if I consume too much of this, but I love you for posting this recipe. LOL One of my favorite chain Mexican restaurants has bottles of garlic sauce on the table and I love the stuff. I never thought of making it at home. Even reading the recipe I wasn't expecting the copycat flavor.... I was expecting the orange to be more dominant so I was surprised and pleased after I made this. I used half orange and half lemon juices and mixed everything in the blender. I then cooked the sauce till bubbly to cook the onion & garlic. I used some of the sauce to make a sort of stir fry with dredged pork cubes, carrots, celery, onion, red & green peppers. Wonderful! The sauce is very garlicky and tastes wonderful. I still have some left, probably not for long. =) Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!

      This was wonderful and so easy. I used Meyer Lemons and added the zest too. Loved it on some Puerto Rican Pork!
