Simple Speedy Thai Marinade for Seafood, Chicken or Red Meat


If you're suffering from flavour fatigue (it's a real thing!), give this delicious-yet-simple marinade a try. It works beautifully with prawns (shrimp), chicken or red meat. And the best part is that it is designed to impart its flavours in 15 minutes! So it's perfect for quick dinners after a long day at the office.


Juice of two limes
2 tablespoons oil of your choice. Purists use peanut oil in Thai recipes, but honestly I often just use olive oil and it still tastes awesome
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 chilli, finely diced. You choose the variety of chilli and whether to leave the seeds in or remove them, according to how much heat you want in your meal.


Place all ingredients in a flat dish and mix with a fork to combine.
Now place your seafood, chicken or red meat into the marinade.
Mix to coat everything and leave to sit for 15 minutes before pan frying or barbecuing.
