Finadene (also fina dene) is a salty, spicy, sour all-purpose condiment used in Chamorro cuisine. The three types are soy sauce, lemon, and coconut, and it is often eaten with meat.


The basic finadene recipe is:

  • 1 part soy sauce
  • 1 part Lemon Juice
  • chopped white onion & or green onion
  • chopped boonie peppers to taste

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

This recipe varies from family to family and changes even further when families move off the island. The base is almost always soy sauce with vinegar and chopped onion.
