Spicy Habanero Marinade
2 - 3
more = hotter
extra virgin olive oil
Using a mortar and pestle, mash the habanero peppers, garlic, turmeric, and cumin. Look for the mix to become coarsely smooth.
In a pan, heat up the olive oil to a medium temperature. Remove it from heat before the oil starts smoking.
Pour the hot oil over the pepper mash and stir it together. You will hear a sizzle as some of the mash cooks from the oil hitting it. After stirring, let the mix sit for 5 - 10 minutes.
Pour mix into a medium bowl and add in the lime juice, the orange juice, and the sherry vinegar. Whisk all ingredients until fully mixed.
Add salt and pepper to taste and let it completely cool before marinating any meat with it.
Can't take the habanero heat? You can swap out a less pungent pepper if you'd like. Note that you will lose some of the sweetness that the habanero brings to the marinade.
