1. Marinades: Bitter orange pairs perfectly with chicken, beef, pork, duck and even vegetables. Add a little olive oil, some garlic and salt and pepper and your foods for the grill will be ready to go!
2. Seville Orange Marmalade: When we can find the physical oranges in the store we make sure to buy extra to make this marmalade from David Lebovitz. It's a perfect pairing with meats, sweets or on a simple piece of toast once you have the taste for it.
3. Pickling: The acidity in these oranges is high enough that you can use the juice like you would vinegar. It's great in dressings, but it makes amazing pickled onions, ready for tacos, gyros and more!
4. Naranjada: When mixed with sugar (1/4 cup) and water (1 1/2 cup), this overly bitter juice (hopefully of 4 oranges) becomes something quite tasty. It's a staple beverage in other parts of the world, more specifically South America. So when your food choices turn that direction, mix yourself up a glass and make sure it's cold, cold, cold! It's great in cocktails in general and perfect if you own a Soda Stream machine!
5. Fish Wet Rub: Mixing 3 tablespoons of sour orange juice with 1 glove of roasted garlic (plus salt and pepper to taste) is a great wet rub for fish. It makes your flaky friend a little slimy and a little sour no matter if it's pan friend, grilled or baked, it works out great in the end.
