Although not originally from Mexico, Mexican cuisine and culture have adopted tamarind as their own and now Tio Pablo has come up with its own version - Adobo de Tamarindo, a tangy smokey, sweet and spicy marinade.
Originally from India, the tamarind tree can be found in the tropical states of Mexico, especially along the Pacific coastline. Grown in pods, this sour fruit brings a rich, tangy flavour to the marinade.
Piloncillo, a Mexican unrefined brown sugar cone with a slight molasses flavour, combined with smokey chipotle pepper creates a true depth of flavour.
Tio Pablo's Adobo de Tamarindo is a versatile marinade; stir-fry with diced pork and serve in tacos, add to fish and serve on rice or slow cook with chicken and kumara.
It is vegan-friendly and gluten-free.
