Garlic Lime Adobo Marinade

May 24, 2009

Simple and delicious.  This was one of John’s all time favorites.  Even though he was maowing down on almonds and pretzle buns and hour after we ate.  He says it’s the law of seafood……”One hour after eating seafood you’ll be hungry – no matter how much seafood you eat!”  I think it’s just his law – on everything!  You can use this marinade on chicken too – it’s very low in fat.  A little trick I learned for shrimp is to butterfly them so the marinade can rach more of the surface.  Worked great – the more garlic the better!  It’s served over Tomatillo Salsa which was the surprise hit of the evening!




Garlic-Lime Adobo





Put your chicken – 2# or shrimp 1-2# in a ziploc bag and pour in:

         1/4 Cup Minced Garlic

     1 tsp Kosher Salt

     1 tsp Cumin optional

     1/3 Cup Lime Juice – fresh or bottled

               2 Tbsp olive Oil 

Seal and massage to distribut. Let marinade at least 30 minutes.

Grill, pan fry or broil.

P.S. Don’t think for one minute that the photo was all that John got for dinner.  He got 5 – FIVE skewers of shrimp, 1 Cup of the salsa and at LEAST 2 cups of my wonderful jasmine rice.  The boy CAN eat!
