BBQ on memorial day..and a few days after =)

Having come from an ancestry of islanders our “hunting” stories usually consist of catching crab and spear fishing. “Back in the day” my parents use to say, “we would barbecue the fish right on the beach.”  Personally, I would love to go back to Guam to go clam diving and coconut crab hunting;  the flavor would be absolutely spectacular!

Anyways, with this perfect weather, my Uncle and I decided to cook our family barbecue (which does not require any bbq sauce)  🙂  It is a very traditional way islanders barbecue, and this marinade is typical for my culture.

Being that it is a family recipe, no actual measurements are followed.  The basic marination is one part soy sauce, two parts water.  Coarsely chopped ginger and garlic, with a LOT of limes or lemons.  An optional addition of onions would be perfect as well.  Marinate for about a day, and this is usually perfect with chicken, beef ribs, pork ribs..just about anything! 🙂

Ribs

(We usually add pepper, but no salt because the soy sauce is already salty.)

Ultimately, the marination will make a extremely juicy and flavorful piece of meat.  YUM!

Chicken

Remember to serve with rice!!
