The Bitter Orange of Mexican Meat Marinade

Bitter orange, or Seville orange, known in Spanish as naranja agria, is often used in Mexican cuisine as a meat marinade. Unfortunately, it’s only in season for a short time, usually around January, says Chuckles the Clone. For the rest of the year, you could try using the version bottled by Goya, made with orange juice concentrate enhanced with Seville orange oil and grapefruit extract. JungMann is not a fan. He recommends regular fresh orange juice with a little added vinegar. ekammin opts for a mixture of orange and lemon juices.
