Thanks for sharing this recipe. Friend, I would like to know if I can use water instead of oil. Could I make the paste using only garlic and salt? How much time is conserved in the refrigerator? Thanks a lot!

   Hi Marceline, If you add water, the shelf life will be less. Yes you can make the garlic and salt paste and can store it in the fridge for 1 week and freezer for 2 weeks.
