Notes

Called Sofrito in the Spanish Caribbean & Latin America and known as Green Seasoning in the rest of the Caribbean, this is an all purpose marinade and seasoning that is added to almost all foods.

Aji Dulce used in this recipe is a mini bell pepper used in the Caribbean. It can be found in Caribbean & Latin markets.

Recaito is a green herb, also known as culantro or shadoe beny has a flavor similar to cilantro, albeit a bit more intense. You can use extra cilantro if you cannot locate recaito.

A dash of local for every season
