This is my wife’s favorite go to marinade recipe which she has finally agreed to share. We’ve used this marinade on shrimp, beef, chicken, pork, and grilled vegetables. Make sure to adjust the amount of chili paste to suit your taste buds. So, give this a try next time you grill up a meal or simply use this concoction in stir fry’s or simmered and reduced as a serving sauce.
