Cuban Garlic Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by FloridaGrl

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 recipe # 379103.
