    About this recipe: This is a West Indian marinade that's been used for generations. It's best suited for fish and game, but I also like it on chicken and pork. Make sure you adjust the amount of chillies to your taste. Also, I sometimes replace the orange juice with marmalade for a sweeter marinade.

    Serves: 2 

    • 6 spring onions, chopped
    • 3 shallots, minced
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

    • 2 Scotch bonnet chillies, chopped
