Adobo is the ultimate marinating spice blend. Its name comes from the Spanish word ‘adobar’ which means to marinade. This type of spice blends is prominently used in Mexican and Latin American dishes.
Initially, before refrigeration, adobo was used to preserve meats and prevent them from losing their flavor and freshness. Nowadays, adobo is a way to inject flavor to raw meat, before cooking, to elevate its natural taste and preserve its juices. There are two ways to mix up and adobo, in a paste o sauce with oil and vinegar or a blend with dry seasoning spices. While the use of each of them depends on the preparation, the use of the dry mixture is more popular and ultimately convenient for its ability to stay fresh much longer than a paste.
