Top Review by Gerry

Adding onion, 6 cloves of garlic, and ginger to lemon juice and olive oil gives you a wonderfully flavourful combination - the chili powder an unexpected touch that makes this marinade special. Have been doing skewers as starts/appetizers for our outdoor cookouts - this one went over big time!I think it would be great for chicken as well. One can't have too many combinations of marinades for those summer BBQ's! Thank you Jewelies - have added this to my collection.
