Garlic, red-pepper flakes, and citrus from orange and lime juices give Cuban mojo its kick. Also try it with scallops or chicken kebabs.

    This Cuban has lived 50 years on this planet without ever using red pepper flakes on any Cuban food. I don't know where they got that idea, but Cubans don't appreciate it when anglos and other bastardize our cuisine.

      Glad you spoke up! I see this happen all the time with Italian dishes, too. What Italian would ever use cheddar cheese in Fettucine Alfredo? I shuddered at that just like you must have with the red pepper flakes. Thank you

    We absolutely love the marinade, though I added about a tablespoon of honey. We did not really care for the cucumbers or oranges. Next time we will make it with pineapple & a summer squash. This marinade would be good for chicken or even as a salad dressing. Slightly hot & delicious.
