adobo seasoning?

  • p
  • 2

For Thanksgiving I'm currently planning on making the NYTimes Haitian turkey recipe.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/11/16/din...

The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of adobo, which one would then sprinkle over the turkey.

I always thought adobo was a Filipino pork dish, but from this recipe it sounds like it's a seasoning. Can I buy it somewhere or easily make it? If I can make it, can someone give me a quick recipe?

Also if anyone else has tried this recipe, could you give me any pointers? Is it worth it? I've made several Thanksgiving turkeys over the years, but this looks rather complicated.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Goya makes an adobo seasoning. Look in the spice aisle of your supermarket, or if not there, try the Internattional aisle.

    1. I plan on doing this recipe with chicken after thanksgiving - it sounds outrageously good. I love the flavor combos. But for the Thanksgiving thing I'm going to a restaurant. Then the next week I'm doing a small turkey on my (beloved) Ron Popeil "Showtime" compact rotisseri. But after that I'm trying that NYT recipe - but with chicken, or perhaps a turkey breast.
      In the meantime I'm going to study up on that recipe.
      If you want to email me we could discuss. It just sounds so good (a grandma recipe!)I want that style of cooking (Carribean)in my repertoire.
      P.S.
      tienda.com is a great retail source for Spanish/Latino ingredients. Also you could google "adobo recipe"
