Guasacaca (Barbecue Sauce from Venezuela)
Wednesday, 11 November 2009
This is by far the most unusual barbecue sauce in Latin America. Because
it contains fresh avocados, it must be used immediately and cannot be
stored. Use it to marinate and/or baste grilled or barbecued shrimp,
beef slices, or chicken.

2 cloves garlic, minced

With a mortar and pestle, mash the onion, garlic, chile, avocado, and
tomatoes into a paste (this may need to be done in batches). Add the
remaining ingredients and blend well with a fork.
