This was really a great marinade. It makes a lot so it will go a long ways. I used it on pork chops (marinated for 8 hours) as opposed to fish and it really turned out wonderfully on the grill. I did omit the tequila (didn't have any) and I did add a Tbl of brown sugar to sweeten it just slightly. Will use again! Would also recommend it for use with chicken. Read More

Outstanding marinade...made as directed. Used it with talipia and shrimp and then grilled them. Put in warm flour tortillas and topped with Avocado Tomato and Mango Salsa (from this site)...excellent! (Was worried that marinade would be too strong because I marinated seafood for 3 hours...no worries...it was perfect. Didn't have problem with fish turning green either.) Read More

AMAZING! I used it on tilapia and shrimp (marinated for about 12 hours) and the flavor was incredible - really fresh and tangy but not too overwhelming. Would probably be just as good without the tequila. Five stars! Read More

Excellent marinade! Used it for grilling shrimp! Used lemon juice instead of lime and it worked quite well! Read More

Thanks for a wonderful marinade! The flavor was just right-tangy spicy and not over powering at all. Tried it on shrimp kabobs and cod fillets then grilled them both. Made for a light and refreshing meal. Enjoyed with a New Zeland White wine and Maui Sunset what a perfect night. Read More

No time to marinate so I roasted fish kebobs in the sauce @ 375 for 25 minutes. Brilliant! I know it wold be even better grilled. Read More

This marinade is wonderful I wouldn't change a thing. I made a half recipe for a freshly caught striper and it was a huge hit! The thick consistency helps the marinade stick to the meat for lots of flavor. Definitely making this one again and again. I think I'll try it on chicken too! Read More
