What is Mexican Adobo Seasoning?
Coming from the Spanish word ‘adobar’, meaning ‘to marinate’, Adobo Seasoning is a staple in Latin American cuisine with many incarnations. Caribbean Latinos tend to use Adobo as a dry rub or flavour base for cooking soups and stews. In Mexico and The Philippines, it is more commonly used in a thick, spicy sauce with the inclusion of liquid to emulsify it. The Peruvian adaptation of Adobo includes the addition of lemon or lime juice and/or beer in the marinade as opposed to the Mexican way which uses orange juice.
What does Mexican Adobo taste like?
Our version of Adobo is closest to the Mexican recipe with the inclusion of Mexican Ancho Chilli Powder. Combined with sweet paprika, turmeric, sea salt, cumin, garlic, onion, oregano, black pepper, and lemon peel, our blend is mild yet full of sweet, zesty, and bold flavour. Its mild taste makes it perfect for the whole family and a great base for a variety of different flavours and proteins. Use to marinate fish, poultry, game, seafood, or veg for authentic Mexican Adobo flavour.
