Balsamic Vinegar 90ml
Juice and zest of 1 orange
4 Garlic Cloves peeled and finely chopped
Smoked paprika 1 tablespoon
Fennel seeds 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds 1 teaspoon
2 whole cloves
Fresh Thyme 1 bunch
Grind the fennel and cumin seeds in a grinder or mortar and pestle. Combine the tomato sauce, orange juice and zest, garlic and balsamic vinegar and mix. Add spices and Thyme leaves and mix well. Marinate seasoned meat overnight or for at least one hour.
Nice variation for Cajun chicken. Replace a third of the paprika with peri peri powder and the juice and rind of the orange with a lemon.
Can add honey to either for additional sweetness.
