WebMD Recipe from

The mojito, a Cuban cocktail, is made with rum, lime juice and fresh mint muddled with sugar at the bottom of a tall glass. We turned this refreshing idea into a brightly flavored marinade that works well with any light meat or seafood. Use on: Extra-firm tofu, shrimp, scallops, mahi-mahi, chicken, pork (see Tip).

Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes
  • shallots, peeled and trimmed
  • 1/4 cup
    coarsely chopped fresh mint
  • 1/4 cup
  • 1 tablespoon
    freshly grated lime zest
  • 1/2 cup
    lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoons
    canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon
    kosher salt
  1. Place shallots, mint, rum, lime zest, lime juice, honey, oil and salt in a food processor. Pulse until the shallots are finely chopped. Pour the marinade into a shallow baking dish or 1-gallon sealable plastic bag for marinating 1 to 2 pounds (4 to 8 servings) of your chosen protein.
