Are you looking for a simple marinade?
Here is one I like to use on both seafood and pork.
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apricot jam
pinch of cayenne pepper.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust it easily if you have more or less meat.
The pork takes about an hour to marinade while the seafood can be done in as little as half an hour
I do not throw away the marinade, but use it in the cook process.
First, fry up the meat then add the marinade with a little cornstarch or flour. This makes a nice sauce to go with the dish.
Other items you can add when frying up the meat is vegetables like onions, carrots, peppers,cabbage, etc., or fruits such as pineapple. The cooked meat and sauce can also put over rice or place it on top of a salad for a special treat.
Hope you enjoy,
