If true naranja agria is unavailable to you, you can make an acceptable substitute using this recipe from
Quote Bitter oranges...sometimes called Seville oranges, are used a great deal in Yucatan cooking.  The juice is used in the seasoning pastes (recados) of the region, in fresh salsas, and to flavor fish and other meats.  This is a substitute for the real thing if Seville oranges are not available.

Makes 3/4 cup

  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Mix all of the juices together in a jar, cover, and store in the refrigerator.  The juice is best used fresh or within 2 days.

Thank you for posting the how to create a Bitter Orange Salsa.
The Seville Orange, is a variety of Citrus, known in Latin as the Aurantium Citrus. They are seasonal, and Globose reddish yellow bitter sour oranges used in traditional Spanish  Maramalade making and yes, in Latin American dishes of course as well ...
They possess bitter sour tasting notes, and yes, they are from Seville ... Probably originally from China and near to the southeastern Part of Asia ...
Regards and thanks again.
