Good one for ribs:

tomato sauce (or sweet chilli sauce),mustard,honey,soy,ginger,garlic

To be more Chinese,omit the mustard and put in some 5 spice powder.

Honey or brown sugar is essential-allows it to caramelise slightly.

Good one for Thai style kebabs:

Soy (ideally sweet Indonesian soy sauce),splash of nam pla (fish sauce) lime juice,chilli,lemon grass,ginger

Peanut sauce to go with it:

Fry onions very slowly on a low heat until caramelised. Add few big spoonfuls of peanut butter,good dash of soy (for colour),tin of coconut milk and the marinade dregs and boil up.

Good one for Indian style chicken:

Good quality curry paste (eg Pataks) mixed with yoghurt and some lime juice.

That do ya?

Blend yoghurt garlic fresh mint corriander and cumin, great with lamb.

Honey and wholegrain mustard

Sounds revolting but strawberry jam and whole grain mustard. Yummmmm!

not a marinade but always goes down well is burger meat or shop bought fresh burgers stuffed with blue cheese. Plonk a lump of blue cheese into middle of burger, roll into a ball and chuck on bbq.

A lot of stuff is just great grilled on its own,with a squeeze of lemon when it's done. I'm thinking sardines and mussels especially.

(Oh and I think marinading is a fascinating topic! )

Jam and mustard????
Wow!!!!

(Can see how it might work though....)

moondog its lovely but you have to make sure it has seeds in and is a good quality jam.

Here you are, low cal marinade for quail/poussin from Fat Girl Slim recipe book:


Ingredients for 2:

4 oven ready quail

FOR THE MARINADE
3 tbsp sake or dry sherry (I used sherry)
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp japanese soy sauce
1 tbsp sesasme oil
3 pinches 5 spice powder (didn't have any, was fine without)
2 pinches caster sugar
2 dashes sweet chilli sauce

FOR STUFFING
4 spring onions trimmed and cut roughly in four
3 crushed garlic cloves
1 thumb root ginger

Put quail in close fitting non reactive dish. whisk marinade ingreds together and set aside. To make stuffing, combine ingreds and chop coarsely. Dab stuffing inside the birds, pour over the marinade and leave in a cool place for 4 - 12 hours, turning occasionally (I only marinated for about an hour)
Preheat oven to 220/Gas 8. Remove birds from marinde, reserving it, then put them on a very large doubled sheet of cooking foil, dull side out, and season them. Draw up the foil to make a well sealed but roomy pouch and place on a sturdy baking sheet. Cook quail for 15 mins. Meanwhile, pour marinade into a pan and boil for a few minuites over a high heat, uncovered, until it is shiny and slightly sticky. Unwrap the pouch and spread open the foil. Brush the quail with the marinade, then continue to roast them, exposed, for about 15 minutes, or until they are glistening and browned. Pour any juices back into the marinade. Serve with marinade spooned over and a bowl of asian style salad.
