i've had this photo sitting in my flickr account for...years, nen. yeah. so long that the kitchn did a post about it in 2008. it's a little overexposed, but it shows the ingredients of one of my favourite marinades, a cuban mojo, which is garlicky, citrusy, herby, so of course, packed with flavour. it works on almost anything--chicken, pork, fish, shellfish, even beef and tofu if you are inclined.
if you click on the photo above, it will take you to its flickr page, where you'll find interactive notes over each ingredient, complete with measurements. just throw everything into a blender, food processor, or mortar and pestle, and go to town. if you are doing meat, i suggest keeping it in the marinade overnight, but for fish and other seafood, no more than one hour, as the citrus will start to cook it. if you are too lazy to click through, here's the recipe:
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 cup olive oil (cheap kind is great)
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup lemon juice (or any sour citrus equivalent)
2-3 bay leaves
garlic cloves (5 for meat, 3 for seafood)
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
throw into blender/food processor. blitz.
