I used this marinade for fried fish. I eliminated the sesame oil, but added a bit of grated lime peel and lemon grass. I used half to marinade the fish and half to spoon over the fish after it was cooked. Before serving the sauce, I added a few sliced green onions, hot peppers and grated carrots. Everyone loved it! Thank you. Read More

I made this "Thai Barbeque Marinade" without the sugar and it was still more than sweet enough for my taste with just the honey. I was surprised when the "marinade" thickened in the pan. It is not clear to me which ingredient would have thickened it. Read More

Used this to marinate chicken breast. It was pretty good. This is definitely a marinade and not a dipping sauce. I reserved a lil bit for dipping and it was waaaay to salty used for dipping. I recommend using a dark brown sugar instead of the white. The brown sugar makes it looks more like "barbeque" sauce. I will use this again. Read More

I tried this on my pork chops today when I found out that I ran out of soy sauce for marinade. I didn't think the fish sauce and honey would work well together but it did! It was perfect! The boyfriend even asked for seconds. The only extra I added was a dash of red pepper flakes. This worked well with pork but I think it'll be even better with chicken.. Thanks! Read More

I used this to marinade 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts for about 18 hours. I grilled them and they were very very moist and tender. If you make this don't expect it to look like the picture unless you use dark brown sugar. I followed the recipe and it produces an oil colored marinade. I was just a tad disappointed with this because it lacks something and I think it's heat of some kind. I wished I would of added some red pepper flakes or hot chile paste to it. I was gonna use mirin for the rice wine but was advised against that and purchased my first bottle of sake at the grocery store for around 8.00. I think we personally prefer the soy based marinades of this type much better and will stick with those. Thanks for something new and different to try. Read More

This is the best marinade ever!! We've used it on pork shrimp chicken and haven't been disappointed yet. What a wonderful flavour. We add a little olive oil to the marinade so the meat doesn't stick to the grill. Yum yum!! Read More
