Hi eleanola - glad you liked the recipe! You're right - this marinade is perfect for salmon, chicken and you could substite tofu in the stir fry too.


This was very good, though I used zucchini instead of carrots, extra garlic, and only 1 lime instead of 3. I marinaded for about 5 hours. I think the marinade would be good for chicken, pork or fish too.
