Hmmm. This is pretty bland as written (quantity is way off too--I quadrupled it so I'd have enough for marinade and enough left over for a sauce). Did not quadruple the garlic or hot pepper sauce as I thought that would be overpowering. It was pretty flavorless, which surprised me after adding all that fresh orange and lime juice and orange peel. (And there was plenty of garlic and hot pepper flavor so it wasn't that.) I added some chopped scallions, Balsamic vinegar, and honey as others suggested, still found it bland. Added a couple of tablespoons of good Seville marmalade (like from Trader Joe's) and that helped quite a bit. Also, this may deliberately be a salt-free recipe but it certainly needs salt. It was all right but lacks that bright flavor of other Caribbean recipes. The sauce helped and also served it with mango chutney. Served with home made black beans (w/ garlic and onion) and white rice. All I needed was fried plantains!
