This is a spicy yet fruity marinade that's great for pork or chicken. After marinating, it is made into a glaze by thickening it on the hob.
If you can't find chilli and garlic paste, use minced fresh garlic and red chilli to taste.
GREAT recipe that I could slightly bend to my needs and adjust in small ways to not only use what I had on hand but to make a little healthier and a tiny bit less spicy for little mouths. I made this marinade this morning (but I did cook it before hand AND added cornstarch for a little thicker marinade--I just cooled it before I used it) and my house smells amazing and I haven't even tasted it yet. I can already tell it's going to be a winner. - 22 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
WOW! What a fabulous marinade! I used low sodium soy sauce and only 1 Tbsp. of chili paste because I didn't want it too hot. I used real minced garlic vs. garlic powder and subbed seasoned rice wine vinegar for the cooking wine. I opted out of the cilantro and instead added thin sliced green onion. I cut the chicken into chunks for kabobs and pierced it lightly with a fork to let the marinade soak through. I put everything into a ziplock bag and let it marinate overnight. I skewered the chicken along with fresh pinapple and grilled it. The smell was heavenly and the result oh so delicious! - 21 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What an outrageous glaze and marinade this is! I marinated a pork tenderloin and then made a fresh batch of the recipe and cooked it on top of the stove for a glaze to pour over the top of the pork. All I can say is "OH MY GOODNESS"!!! I felt like a gourmet cook! This recipe is a nice touch. I did do a couple of things different. I used crushed pinapple which went nice with the chunks from the orange marmalade. I used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I marinated it with fresh ginger slices and used ground ginger when I cooked it on top of the stove. I even added a sprinkle of chinese 5 spice powder. I didn't have the chili paste so I used a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes and the other thing I changed was instead of chinese cooking wine (which I could not find) I used white wine. I just think the crushed pineapple added a nice texture to the glaze. GREAT RECIPE!!!! 5+ stars! - 02 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
