This is a Cuban classic and makes a wonderful marinade for meats and poultry. Traditionally this is made with sour oranges. If those are not available, this version is great! The recipe comes from Beyond Gumbo.

I used this to marinade Fajitas instead of store bought. I actually put in the the blender then poured over skirt steak and placed in refrigerator for about 1 1/2 hours. Very tender and very nice flavor. Lisa

It was good. I did marinade the chicken over night and smelled good when opening the bag to put on grill. The marinade to me seemed to not stay with the meat when it was cooked. chef 202151
