You may remember I tried out The Ambu Tree Mild Tandoori Marinade recently and was majorly impressed with not just the taste but also the low fat and calorie content. I decided to try out the Zingtiliating Chinese Five Spice Marinade on a joint of roast pork at the weekend.
It's a runnier sauce so I poured it all over the top of the meat (the joint weighed about 1kg) then rolled it over and spooned the sauce that had pooled at the bottom back over the top.
Now I admit, this doesn't look very appetising but it tasted wonderful. The marinade is quite salty so you don't need to season the meat before marinating it. It gave a wonderful exotic flavour to the meat - not hot and spicy but definitely Oriental, vaguely aniseedy and slightly sweet. The ingredients list is beautifully free of hidden nasties : gluten free soy sauce, balsamic vinegar (sulphites), ginger, spring onion, tomato puree, agave nectar, Sichuan peppercorns, cinnamon, fennel, cloves, star anise, chilli.
The whole 100g pot contains 93 calories and 1g of fat so it's great if you want to liven up a diet-friendly meal.
