    The first time I used this, I marinated some salmon fillets. I was making a "thank you" meal for a friend who was helping me fix my bike. It was fantastic!

    While he worked on the bike, he told me a story about how his uncle had gone through a military survival course, and the final exam was being dropped off on an island for two weeks. My friend said that his uncle's view of what was edible changed from our typical ideas to "whatever was slow enough to catch" including lizards and bugs.

    When we sat down to supper, my friend tasted the salmon made with the Spicy Mojo Marinade and said, "Oh, this is so good, it would make lizard taste good. But if you ever feed me lizard, please don't tell me until after I eat it."

    I told him, "If I ever feed you lizard, you will be so glad for the change from bugs, you won't mind knowing."

    I hope you at McIlhenny Co. do not feel this is some kind of backhanded compliment. We both loved the flavor of the marinade. It really made the meal something special.
