Sour orange mojo

Pork belly, scored skinside, and marinated for two days.

A beautiful incongruity of winter is the ready availability of fresh domestic citrus. Mojo usually calls for sour oranges, but we frequently substitute sweet orange fortified with lime juice. This recipe will marinate 1-2 pounds of meat. Careful with the salt if you will be brining your meat. Good Stuff!
