From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Finadene (also fina dene) is a salty, spicy, sour all-purpose condiment used in Chamorro cuisine. It is made of soy sauce, vinegar or lemon juice, chopped white onion, and fresh chilies. Adding oil and/or water to finadene makes it suitable as an all-purpose marinade. Also a different type of finadene is lemon finadene which substitutes the soy sauce with lemon juice and thus substituting lemon juice for vinegar.


The basic finadene recipe is:

  • 2 part soy sauce
  • 1 part lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1 chopped white onion & or green onion
  • chopped boonie peppers (a local fresh chili) to taste

Mix all the ingredients into a jar and serve. (Optional)Chill for at least an hour prior to using.
