Chicken, grilling, Marinade, Mojo, Paleo, Salad, Shellfish

Today’s summertime marinade is a Cuban classic – Mojo. This mix of citrus, garlic and cilantro works works great on chicken, fish and shellfish, and it might just be the new recipe to spice up your menu. Serve anyway you want – with tortillas, on a salad, or be traditional and go with black beans and rice. IMG_2158
