Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - This versatile and universal marinade works a treat with any meats, tiger prawns, tofu, in fact anything that needs spicing up! You can use it immediately, for example on chicken wings, or you can marinade a whole roast in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

Preparation time: 5 minutes


  • 1 inch (2.5cm) piece root ginger, peeled and crushed
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    Chili *n* Nut Marinade
  • 2 tsp (10ml) red chili powder
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) peanut oil
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) honey
  • 2 tsp (10ml) dijon mustard
  • 4 tbsp (60ml) peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15ml) coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 5 tbsp (75ml) cold water


Mix all the ingredients together and brush over your favourite meat, fish, tofu or vegetables.

Cook either under the grill, in a non-stick pan, or in a moderately hot oven, depending on the food chosen.

Cooking Tip

This easy marinade can be made up and frozen in bulk. Simply defrost, stir well and use. You can either brush it onto the food, or just stir it into the raw ingredients, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter, and if you're a real nut-o-holic, you can even throw in some chopped peanuts.
