  • 2 tablespoon(s) sugar
Intructions :
  • Puree the ingredients listed below in a food processor or blender until smooth
  • Rub the sauce on chicken, pork, fish, tofu, shrimp or red meat, and marinate the protein overnight; any leftover sauce will keep for weeks in the refrigerator
  • NOTE: For all meat, except seafood, marinade overnight. Seafood can marinade for 30 mins. Can bake or grill... Meat may turn a very dark color, this is normal not burned... Save some for basting and dipping!
  • ***Note*** If you are not a fan of the flavor that Olive Oil has, then you can substitute the olive oil for Canola oil.
