Espetada Recipe

Honey, lime and ginger espetada

As you all know, we are obsessed with all things light, crisp and delicious. Leading into the most festive time of the year - we thought it would be a great idea to share some of our favourite recipes with our SOCIAL circle!

This juicy espetada is flavour forward and straight up succulent. The easy marinade takes about 10 minutes to prepare and after a few hours in the fridge, the simple chicken espetada is transported to a haven of tropical flavors!

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken thighs, skin on and deboned

Marinade

  • zest and juice of 3 limes
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 thumb fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

1) Place the chicken thighs in a large bowl.

2) Whisk together the marinade ingredients in a jug and pour onto the chicken, making sure it is well coated. Cover and allow marinating for about 45 minutes.

3) Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with foil.

4) Thread the thighs onto a large metal skewer, reserving the marinade. Place the skewer on the prepared baking tray and roast in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, basting with the reserved marinade every 10 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with a fresh green salad.
