Hullo internet friends!  I’m here to share a quick and tasty recipe in this quick and tasty post.

This Caribbean flavored marinade is largely inspired by one we make and put on beef skewers at the fancy, waterfront restaurant where I work.  The sous chef that I work under knows that those spicy beef satays are one of my favorite things and he almost always gives me a little ‘quality control’ snack whenever we serve this one up at a banquet.

My version was quite tasty on some grilled chicken and vegetable skewers served up with some rice!  These skewers would be great with any sort of picnic sides like potato or macaroni salad too.


Caribbean Marinade – Grilled Chicken and Veggie Skewers

Serves 4 – Cost approx $1.43 per serving, including rice


  • 1 can coconut milk ($.99)
  • 1 jalapeno, take out the seeds if you’re a sissy ($.25)
  • 1/4 bunch cilantro ($.25)
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 1 Tbs curry powder
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes or strips ($1.49)
  • 1/4 lb mushrooms, large dice ($1)
  • 1 red onion, large dice ($.50)
  • 1 bell pepper, large dice ($.50)

Sooooo, this recipe is very complicated so pay attention!  Just kidding, it’s easier than taking candy from babies.  First, you blend up all the marinade ingredients in the first list.


Second, you marinade all your goodies anywhere from 2 hours to overnight.  You can pre-skewer and pour over the marinade or marinade the goodies and skewer later.  I did it the later way because I was running late for work and didn’t have the time to assemble the skewers…
