), stem removed
Juice of 1 lime
Salt element to taste (can be any type of dry salt, soy sauce, fish sauce, etc)
Sweet element to taste (I like honey)
You can add black or white pepper if you like
Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Adjust seasonings if needed. If you can't find or don't like papaya, sub equal amount of fresh or canned pineapple. This is a basic guide, make it yours!
This will be great as a marinade for grilled bone in/skin on chicken thighs. Marinate them for up to 3 hours. Reserve the marinade. Bring to a boil, simmer until it reaches a glaze like consistency. You can baste the thighs at the end of cooking and/or serve as sauce on the side.
