I love this marinade. I only used one lime and added a few tablespoons of riesling wine instead. I replaced the sugar with a two squeezes of honey. I upped the cilantro a bit but did not use cumin. You really can't go wrong on this one. Tastes fabulous!

I LOVE this marinade. I've used it for barbequed chicken breasts and thighs a couple of times, but tonight I marinated shrimp in it and barbecued the shrimp over mesquite coals. It is to die for! I made shrimp tacos with the shrimp by crisping tortillas over the coals and then topping the tacos with fresh avocado, garden tomatoes, sour cream, and cilantro sprigs. I would have to say that the shrimp have definitely been the best meat for this marinade, so far. Try it! You won't be sorry.

This marinade was wonderful! We used it for chicken fajitas. I also made up a second batch to marinade the peppers and onions seperately and grilled everything. Better than going out and a lot cheaper. I will be using this often. Thanks for posting!

Great marinade for chicken breasts. It helps if you stab each of the breasts with a fork a few times before putting them in the marinade--helps get the flavor inside the meat and keeps it very moist. I've also marinated for an hour or longer and the flavor was great--not too intense.

This marinade was delicious and so easy to make. I only had dried coriander and it worked just fine by using just 1 tsp. I use this recipe all the time

This marinade was excellent. I didn't have cilantro and so I left it out and it was still great! I marinated 10 chicken thighs for 4 hours and then we grilled them.
