This basic marinade, also good with chicken, imparts a bright flavor and keeps meats moist. It's perfect for grilling and also enhances the flavors of fresh vegetables, tofu, and soft cheeses. The marinade doesn't work well as a sauce, so discard it before cooking.

The avocado is known as a "pear" in Jamaica, and has also been called "poor man's butter." Those grown on the island have a smoother, lighter skin than Hass avocados, but the texture and the flesh are similar. There, avocados are most often served peeled and sliced with a morning meal or a sweet snack. From the book "Lucinda's Authentic Jamaican Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).
