This simple, Asian-inspired marinade is fabulous basted over tuna or salmon steaks, chicken or pork. It can even be used as a stir fry sauce if you double or treble the amount.

  • 2 tablespoons of Haughton Honey
  • Half a red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and minced
  • A 1" piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 3 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
  • The juice of a quarter of a lime
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped, fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil (if stir frying)
  • A selection of sliced vegetables (if stir frying)


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl before adding your fish or meat. Marinade for at least an hour before cooking on the BBQ or in a thick-based pan or griddle on the hob.
  2. To use the marinade as a stir fry sauce heat a tablespoon of sesame oil in a wok and then throw in a selection of sliced vegetables (mangetout, spring onions, peppers, beansprouts, pak choi etc)
