    Manami's Note:

    "The mojito, a Cuban cocktail, is made with rum, lime juice and fresh mint muddled with sugar at the bottom of a tall glass. We turned this refreshing idea into a brightly flavored marinade that works well with any light meat or seafood. Use on: Extra-firm tofu, shrimp, scallops, mahi-mahi, chicken, pork." EatingWell, May/June issoue 07. Below I have listed some marinating times for some of the meats, chicken & fish I thought you could use it on -- of course, with help from the magazine. Yield: 1-1/4 cups (computer won't accept any number that's not a whole one).
