The city of Tamarindo, Costa Rica is just down the street from us, and where my wife grew up. A sleepy beach town of yesteryear and a radical place to enjoy a cold beer and some epic waves! Tamarindo got its name from the local tree that is everywhere in the zone… Can you guess the name?!!! LOL
The fruit is very acidic, but mixed correctly with much love and you have our Tropical Tamarindo Caribbean Jerk Sauce! Tomatoes, celery, cilantro, chives, raisins and a few other choice ingredients give that Caribbean jerk flavor that is a family favorite in the Ricante household. This sauce will blow your mind when it comes to marinades and reductions. Enjoy!
