tangy bbq marinade and coleslaw


For a tasty tang on your chicken wings – enough for about 12 whole wings or a butterflied chicken. Gives a lovely colour as well. Would also work on ribs or pork belly strips, or on a butterflied chicken. Marinade for an hour.

I know, it looks like a lot of ingredients, but it's worth it. Works well with a potato salad and some oriental slaw.

3 cloves of garlic
Two tablespoons of garam masala
Two teaspoons of ground cinnamon
Heaped teaspoon of Chinese chilli oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped into four
1” fresh ginger root
Two teaspoons brown sugar
Large pinch of salt
Two tablespoons of corn oil
Three tablespoons of tomato puree
1 tablespoon sweet paprika
1 lemon, flesh and juice
Heaped teaspoon of meaux mustard (Dijon mustard with wholegrains)

Put all ingredients except the mustard into a blender, whizz it all together, when smooth add the mustard.

Use as marinade on chicken wings, cook on bbq at medium heat. Brush on any marinade left over during cooking.
