Restaurant worthy! Use to marinate pork, chicken or fish...don't forget wings. One recipe yields enough marinade for approximately one pound of meat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a mortar and pestle, grind together ground peppercorns and garlic. Add cilantro and work into a paste. Stir in soy sauce (or fish sauce) and vegetable oil until evenly mixed. This may, also, be done in a small food processor or food grinder. Keeps up to 4 days.
  2. In a 1-gallon ziplock bag, combine marinade and chicken, pork or fish pieces, messaging to evenly coat; chill 1-2 hours or overnight. Please, don't forget to season with salt before grillling.
  3. For a compatible dipping sauce, see recipe #457035.
