  • 250
    orange juice
  • zest or an orange and a lemon
  • juice of a lemon
  • some chopped mint
  • 1
    piece fresh ginger- grated
  • 2
    cloves of garlic- finely chopped
  • 1
    brown sugar
  • 1
    whole dry coriander- roasted
  • 1
    fine cloves
  • 1
    ground cinnamon
  • 1
    ground cloves
  • 1
    salt and pepper
  • pinch
    dry oregano
  • 1-2
    runny honey


Mix together the orange and lemon juice with the zest, mint, ginger, garlic and brown sugar. Marinate the riblets in the mixture for at least 2 hours. In the meantime, make the spice mix.

Grind the spices, salt and pepper and organo together in a pestle and mortar. Rub onto the meat before cooking.

Preheat the oven to 200°C and place the ribs on a roasting rack in a roasting tray( letting the fat drip off ensures crispy ribs) and roast in the oven until done- about 30-35 minutes.

Baste with the marinade during roasting. Just before you remove them from the oven, drizzle the honey over the ribs and place back in the oven for one or two minutes.
