Black Garlic Marinade

Cuisine: Miscellaneous

Cook time:

Serves: 12 pieces

The heavenly sweet sticky black garlic makes the perfect base for a marinade or dressing. There is so much umami here it will go with just about anything. Add extra oil to make a delicious dressing for a lentil salad (recipe guide below), or replace the oil with butter and chill to make a wonderful spiced butter for roasted and grilled meats and vegetables, particularly large roast mushrooms.


Marinade will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 weeks.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180C.
  2. Combine Black Garlic Powder with the next 7 listed ingredients. Either shake together in a jar, or for a smoother paste, blitz in the small bowl of a food processor.
  3. Take the marinade and rub all over chicken, gently lifting the skin and pushing some under there too.
  4. Place chicken pieces on a lined baking tray and roast for 30 minutes until cooked through.
  5. Serve immediately, or allow to cool before refrigerating (great for picnics!)
