Barbecue Sauce, A Quick Marinade

Mamta Gupta

This is an almost instant BBQ sauce. If you think about it, all these sauces that I have listed below, have been made by big companies, after a huge amount of research/experimentation and they are all popular for their individual flavours. So why not mix them to get an even more intense flavour?

This marinating sauce can be used with meat/poultry/seafood and even vegetables. It can also be added to stir-fried rice.

Enough for 2-4 single portions.

  • 2-3 single servings/portions of fish/chicken/meat/prawns/vegetable portions

  • For the marinade:

  • 1 tsp tomato ketchup

  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tsp. Soya sauce

  • 1 tsp. Maggi/other seasoning sauce

  • 1 tbsp. English/American/French made mustard paste of choice

  • 1 tsp. chilli/Tabasco sauce or any chilli sauce of choice, adjust amount to your taste

  • A sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper

  • A sprinkle of chilli flakes (optional)

  • You can add a little garlic salt or crushed garlic too.


  1. Mix all sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl. Check if it tastes good. Adjust to taste by adding more of whatever you need.

  2. Add fish/meat/chicken/vegetable pieces and mix well so that all the pieces are coated. Leave for a few hours.

  3. Cook on a barbecue or under a hot grill or in an oven (450F or 225 C) or in a frying pan, turning once or twice until done on all sides.

  4. Serve with a selection of boiled vegetables/roast or jacket potatoes/rice/salad or as part of a buffet.
