This delicious recipe is made with the Naranja Agria, a small bitter orange used in Latin American cooking – perfect for marinating meats. We enjoyed Yeni’s version at our homestay in Soroa, Cuba. She prepared marinated chicken for us, along with plate after plate of delicious food.
- 10-12 garlic cloves
- 1 cup cilantro
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 olive oil
- 3/4 cup Naranja Agria (or substitute 2 parts lemon to 1 part orange juice)
Place garlic in food processor, and bring to a rough chop. Add cilantro, oregano and cumin, then blend on medium speed. Add salt and pepper to taste, then place mixture into a bowl filled with olive oil and Naranja Agria. Whisk until completely blended
Marinate meat, or simply spoon over meat while cooking.
