Another wonderful marinade for meats. I really like this one on lamb, but it is terrific on pork and poultry, too.

This is a great marinade. I made it according to the recipe (except that I only had 2 scallions). I chose ground cumin and also added about 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro. The marinade had a wonderful tangy, garlicky flavour. I marinated chicken breasts for about an hour and then grilled them. I think next time I would bake them so the excess marinade would render down nicely rather than go to waste. I also thought that instead of meat, you could throw in some thinly sliced cucumber and have a great little salad! The flavours are so great together - almost like a tzatziki (sp?). Thanks PetitFour!

I made this with the curry and baked chicken breasts in it...it tasted delicious served over rice! the one thing that I would caution is that it is very, very sour/bitter; next time I would cut back on the lime. I did find that keeping it warm helped prevent the sour edge.
