Chili marinade

Do you want to marinate your meat in a delicious but spicy Asian way? Then do that with this Chili marinade. This is a spicy marinade with a fresh undertone that goes perfectly with chicken skewers for the BBQ. Spicy, slightly sweet and yet very fresh, a special combination for the connoisseur.


  • Finely chop the green part of the lemongrass stalk and put it in a mortar
  • Crush the garlic clove and finely chop the white part of the spring onion and add both to the mortar
  • Squeeze the juice of the two limes above the mortar and add the palm sugar (or brown sugar)
  • Finally, add the 4 tablespoons of Sambal Oelek, or more if you like extra spicy
  • Crush all this together well so that the flavors are released and mix
  • Mix the marinade with the meat to be marinated and let it soak for at least two hours, preferably overnight (in the fridge)

Enjoy your dinner

This Chili marinade is a delicious spicy yet fresh marinade that you can use perfectly for marinating your BBQ dishes, but can also certainly be used for marinating your Asian tapas.
