Pineapple Tamarind Chicken Lettuce Wraps #PuloCuisine
I am with Pulo Cuisine today and sharing my latest favorite recipe. This is the simplest and most delicious of recipes using the Pineapple Tamarind marinade from Pulo Cuisine. This dish gives you all the flavor you need with very little effort. I first served the Pineapple Tamarind Chicken Lettuce Wraps at a block party and it was a huge success. The first appetizer to be gobbled down. The presentation has the WOW factor but is so simple. It is just a halved pineapple with the pulp taken out. Save that for smoothies or another use.
Pulo products provide an authentic collection of marinades and sauces that are inspired by the 7000 Islands of the Philippines. The country is a dynamic mixture of different cultures: Malay, Chinese, Spanish and Indian. These influences have all contributed to the richness of Philippine cooking.
The Pineapple Tamarind marinade marries sweet and sour perfectly and finishes off with a refreshing fruity flavour.
This marinade I have used with chicken, pork, beef and shrimp. It is so versatile and of course very easy to use!!
