    Altered ingredient amounts. This marinade was absolutely wonderful and delicious! My picky sister ate every bit of it. I halved the black pepper and added just a little bit of coriander and onion into the blender. It came out great. Next time I will reduce the salt a little. Thanks again!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Fantastic and so simple! We used this last night for our chicken for the barbecue(about 4 hours soaking) and loved it! It keeps the chicken very juicy and the flavour was excellent (and surprising for the very few ingredients). We will definitely use this one again and again!  -  29 Sep 2008


    I used Fivebrigs recipes in the past and none have ever failed me. Again this one's a keeper. I used this during Christmas for our 9kg turkey, it was marvelous! I brined the turkey 2 days before cooking it, then made the marinade and added sazon to it, rubbed it all over the turkey (under all of it's skin and body cavity) fridged overnite until ready to roast. I put it in a turkey bag slowly cooked it at 150C for 3 hrs, during which time I rotated and basted it every HR. Once it was ready I opened the bag to let the turkey crisp a bit and it came out so perfect. No need to carve it with a knife. It literally fell off of the bone. It was so moist and tender, everyone loved it. MMMMMMMM!  -  29 Sep 2008
