Recipe: Mango Marinade

Exclusively for Prime members in select ZIP codes.

Here's a versatile and deliciously simple marinade for chicken, pork or tofu using fresh mango. Try a garnish of fresh cilantro or green onions on the finished dish.

Makes 1 cup marinade


1 large ripe mango, chopped

1 tablespoon avocado or coconut oil

2 tablespoons orange juice

2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

2 teaspoons sugar (coconut or light brown)

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

¾ teaspoon fine sea salt

¼ teaspoon crushed red chile flakes


To make the marinade, combine mango, oil, juice, ginger, sugar, garlic, salt and chile flakes in a blender or food processor and puree. Pour into a large bowl and add up to 2 pounds of chicken breast or chicken thighs, pork chops or sliced firm tofu. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 1 day.

When ready to cook, transfer everything (marinade and all) to a baking dish and bake in a 425°F oven until cooked through; or remove the food from the marinade and grill it, then place the marinade into a small saucepan with ⅓ cup water and boil for at least 5 minutes before serving it along with the grilled food.
