This marinade is sweet, pungent, heady and I can vouch for the fact that it goes really well with pork. I haven’t tried it yet with chicken or prawns (will be doing this next and will keep you updated) but i daresay it would go quite well with either of these too. I used coriander out of the garden and I think is way better than anything you’ll find in the shops. Hunt for it in your farmers markets. It’s well worth that extra mile.
> prepare your meat (chop up chicken/ pork/ devein prawns, about 500-700g worth, you can get away with less prawns – enough to serve 3 or so)
> A handful or small bunch of coriander, washed and chopped, a decent chunk of ginger, peeled and grated, 1 red chilli finely chopped, 2 or 3 cloves of minced garlic. Pound together in a mortar and pestle until you have a fine paste.
> put paste in with your meat. Add the juice of 1/4 of an orange, a tsp honey, 2-3 tsp soy sauce and 2-3 tsp vegetable oil. Leave in a container overnight in the fridge.
Fry the meat over a high heat and use to make stir fries, fried rice, salads, serve with rice or noodles or enjoy on its own.
