One of Our Most Requested Recipes

If you’ve been following our John Michael Exquisite Weddings and Catering’s Facebook page, you’ve recently seen a post about our incredible Latin inspired Pernil!

Pernil is a delicious, slow-roasted marinated pork dish usually made with lots of citrus and a spicy adobo seasoning. It’s cooked for hours and hours until it falls off the bone.

It is one of our most requested items for our Chef Carved Meat Stations!

Right alongside our Pernil, you will find a pairing of three delicious condiments – Sweet Barbecue Sauce, Pomerey Mustard, and our incredible Jalapeño Lime Butter.

With so many of you getting adventurous with your cooking during your time at home, we thought we would share this flavorful and easy to make recipe.

Not only is our chef’s famous Jalapeño Lime Butter easy to make, but it will also pair perfectly with all those meats and vegetables you are grilling.

Here’s everything you’ll need to know to make this savory condiment.
