The title of this recipe could have been "Spicy Coconut Milk Herb Marinade that will make you become a star chef", but that was too long. This marinade recipe was first used/posted in November of 2018 as a recipe with Turkey Wings - Spicy Coconut Milk Herb Turkey, and now 5 years later, after using it on various protein options - turkey wings, whole turkeys, and chicken, steak, and don't get me started on the deliciousness that is this recipe used to marinate some lamb chops!

I can go on and on about how perfect this marinade is, but I will cut to the chase and let you start getting your shopping list together. If you prefer to watch the video, it's available on Instagram here.
This recipe uses coconut milk as the binder for everything, lots of aromatics and warm spices, and a not-so-secret ingredient, Rodo Crisps, for that spicy kick that brings it all together.
