Ado! This Adobo spice blend is inspired by the Puerto Rican version that uses a seasoning blend as a dry or wet rub. The hint of citrus from the lime zest fully embraces the island cuisine. A savory seasoning, adobo is a key seasoning in Spanish Caribbean and Latin American kitchens and is traditionally used to season and/or marinate chicken or fish.
We like this Adobo Lime Rub best on chicken and lighter seafood like tilapia, salmon, and shrimp. It also adds some unexpected flavor to steamed and roasted vegetables, especially potatoes. If you are a fan of your air fryer, Island Adobo Rub makes some fabulous chicken wings!
As a rub liberally shake this seasoning onto the meat and then “pat” it in evenly onto both sides. For chicken we recommend 1 tablespoon of seasoning per lb of meat and for fish about ½ that amount (you can always add more if you feel the dish calls for it).
For chicken we recommend placing the seasoned chicken in the fridge for at least 2-4 hours ( up to 24 hours). To obtain maximum flavor when using on fish do not let the seasoning set on the meat for more than an hour before cooking. You can apply this as a dry rub or apply with a little olive oil. Another great addition is fresh lime juice to bring the lime zest to life!
Hand blended from cumin, garlic, fennel, lime zest, black pepper, salt, coriander, Mexican oregano, rosemary and thyme.
