In mixing bowl combine orange juice, lime juice, water, onion, habanero, cilantro and salt to taste. Barbeque fish over hot coals, skin-side down, until seared, 2 minutes.

Times article, "Home Ground", 10/6/94, page H16. "The ricado used in this dish is the basis for many Yucatan peninsula dishes. The most famous is cochinita pibil; a suckling pig, marinated with this spice paste and wrapped in banana leaves, baked in a Mayan earth oven called a pib. Large fish and venison or other wild game are also baked in pibs. I slather this paste on guinea hens and broil them on the rotisserie, or wrap marinated chicken breasts or fish fillets in banana leaves with slices of orange and steam the packets. One of my favorite appetizers is chicken drummettes baked with this recado. "... Quintana Roo oregano comes from a tree, not a shrub, and the long leaves turn black when they dry. Mexican oregano can be substituted for it."
