Spice It up Marinade or Sauce

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by Debbwl

We like this very spicy sauce over green beans but think it may be good over other types of veggies also. Ripped this out of a magazine way back when. The magazine recommended marinating shrimp fallowed by grilling with chopped veggies.

This was very good! I used it to marinate shrimp, which I served with saffron rice and a salad. I expected the shrimp to be much hotter spicewise than they were, but I was very happy with just the light background heat that complimented the sweetness of the honey and the nice blend of spices. The turmeric gave these a beautiful golden color. A really nice marinade, which I think would also be good on a firm white fish. Thanks for posting!
