    A luxurious marinade made with honey, mustard and chillies. I love it on mutton, lamb or for meaty kebabs.

    This has to be the greatest lamb marinade ever. Did not have the asian chilli and used Thai sweet chilli sauce instead and it worked out. Definitely a keeper.  -  18 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was the best Lamb Marinade ever, made it for mother's day and have not stopped thinking about it since!! I made Lamb Kabobs with it for 11 people and made 40 Kabobs with lamb and 40 each of chicken and shrimp- the lamb was the only ones that were completly devoured. Even the guests that did not like lamb LOOVVEED it! I could not find any Asian Chile paste, but what I did find was Asian Curry paste- so I used that instead and just omitted the Curry. Gonna make this again, very very soon!  -  12 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
