Uop Sa Nuong
LEMONGRASS GRILLING MARINADE
Uop Sa Nuong is a dynamic and fragrant marinade that makes the meat tender, juicy and delectable. This marinade has an exquisite combination of savory, sweet, garlic and lemongrass notes, and can be used to enhance the flavor of chicken, pork, beef, shrimp, tofu or even your vegetables. Grilling on an open flame lends a distinctive charring, while simultaneously developing and enhancing the aroma of the marinade infused into the protein.

I put a little under 2 tablespoons for a bag of thawed shrimp. I didn't even have much time to marinate them (under an hour) and I put them in the air fryer. UNREAL. So much flavour!! I served it with vermicelli noodles and fresh greens, herbs, cucumber and pickled carrot and it was light, flavourful and definitely a new staple. I will be purchasing more of this jar and others.
I purchased a jar at the TO food and drink fest and was really eager to try it. I used it to marinade chicken thighs to put in the grill and it was delicious! Really nice flavour, mild heat, even the kids enjoyed it. I’m sad I only bought one jar but will be ordering more soon!
