Finadene sauce is a Chamorro, or Guamanian condiment that is spicy, tangy and out of this world. If you're into trying new things and love heat, this is a must try!

So finadene is a guamanian side that is zesty, spicy and really packs a punch. It’s a simple sauce made of lemon juice (sometimes vinegar), soy sauce, onions and peppers. Some add tomato as well.

Whenever I used to go to Thanksgiving on my dad’s side of the family, we would have a whole slew of chamorro dishes.

Chicken kelaguen, red rice are always staples, and you would just cover it all with finadene.

I also love to add it to a lemon and soy sauce marinated grilled chicken that I grew up eating.

You can use this sauce the day of, but I really recommed letting it sit in the fridge for a couple days to allow those flavors to melt together.

You can keep it in the fridge for about a week and the longer it sits, the spicier it’ll get!
