Adobo is a Spanish word that means marinade, sauce or seasoning and is used as both a verb and a noun. That's because in some cuisines adobo refers to a blend of spices while in other cuisines it references a method of cooking that uses an acidic marinade. Adobo originated in Iberia, Spain and then became popular in Portugal before moving on to the Caribbean, Latin America and the Philippines.

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.



In this hand blended adobo, none of the spices dominate but instead create a delicate balance for maximum taste. While many adobo marinades call for the addition of citrus juices, for this seasoning blend we've already added some lime zest for more flavor when used as a rub. We like this Adobo Lime Rub best on chicken, lighter seafood like tilapia and salmon. It also adds some unexpected flavor to steamed and roasted vegetables and we’ve also had some great success using it on red or white potatoes.

As a rub I like to 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).



Hand blended from cumin, garlic, fennel, lime zest, black pepper, salt, coriander, Mexican oregano, rosemary and thyme.
