Adobo seasoning is used most often on Southwestern style and Latin American dishes. There are many varieties that can change based on region, cities and even family recipes. Now while we also carry a more traditional Adobo Seasoning this one has more of a Puerto Rican influence that is used more as a dry rub and is added generously to meat and seafood before grilling or frying.
In this well made adobo, none of the spices dominate but instead create a delicate balance for maximum taste. Many adobos call for the addition of citrus juices but for this blend we have already added some lime zest for more convenience . We like this Adobo Lime Rub best on chicken and lighter seafood like tilapia and salmon.
As a rub we like to liberally shake this seasoning onto the meat and then "rub" it in evenly onto both sides. We then like to refrigerate chicken for 1-2 hours and fish for an hour before cooking for maximum flavor. You can apply this as a dry run or apply with a little olive oil. Either way we like to add a dash or two of fresh lime juice as it really takes this seasoning over the top!
Hand blended from fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary.
We also stock a growing selection of seasonings and Dry Rubs as well as other popular Mexican and Latin American seasonings with some of our most popular being --- Manzanillo Seasoning, Jamaican Jerk, Adobo and Caribbean Spice .
