Recipe by Chef Sean #2
This marinade is sneaky, in that people are initially fooled by the sweet raspberry flavor, then the heat of the Habaneros hits your taste buds like a runaway train. Recommended cuts: Shrimp (2 to 3 hours); poultry breasts (4 to 6 hours) From: Marinades by Jim Tarantino.
- 3 dried habanero chiles or 3 ground habanero chile pepper
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 1 cup raspberry vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh unsweetened raspberries or 1 1⁄2 cups frozen unsweetened raspberries
- 1⁄3 cup orange juice (fresh preferred)
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine the chiles, orange zest, and vinegar in a heavy non-reactive pot and bring to a boil.
- Reduce the vinegar to 1/3 cup, strain, and discard the solids.
- Return the vinegar to the saucepan.
- Puree the raspberries in a food processor fitted with a plastic dough blade. (A metal blade will crush the seeds, which will impart a bitter taste to the food.) Then strain.
- Add the raspberry puree to the vinegar and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
- Cool to room temperature and add the orange juice.
- This marinade will keep for 1 to 2 weeks, in an airtight jar, in the refrigerator.
