Ginger and Sesame Marinade

Recipe by English_Rose
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • The marinade- Put the ginger in a fine sieve, or a sieve lined with muslin, and press the juice into a bowl.
  • You need to extract 7 tbs ginger juice – add a little water to the ginger pulp and squeeze again if necessary. Add the remaining ingredients, except the sugar, and stir to mix.
  • Put the meat or seafood in a non-metallic shallow dish and rub the marinade all over. For meat, cover and leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight. Fish and shrimp only need marinating for up to 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Remember to give the marinated food at least 20 minutes to return to room temperature before cooking.
  • To cook- While cooking the food, season and baste it with the marinade. Before brushing the final few strokes on, add the sugar and stir to dissolve; this helps glaze the food, but if the sugar is added too soon, it will burn and stick.
