Asian Style Mirabelle Plum Marinade/Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 jar St. Dalfour Mirabelle Plum Spread
  • 1/4 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 4 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Salt to taste (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice

Method:

Combine all of the ingredients together. Taste before adding any salt as the soy sauce is usually salty enough.

Note: This can be used as a sauce to have with ready cooked meat such as pork chops or chicken or it can be used as a marinade for any meat that you intend to bake, grill, fry or barbecue.

The marinade is particularly delicious with pork. I marinade pork loin chops for at least an hour then add a little olive oil to a hot frypan and cook the chops. I add any leftover marinade and a little water to the pan in the last 5 minutes of cooking and end up with this beautiful thick sticky sauce covering the pork.
