Never knew how simple this is. I love garlic sauce and especially chicken kebabs. If only I could get teh chicken to taste like it does from the guys at he Kebab shop down the road. But I have tried a few variations on this recipe, from using garlic paste, to cloves, and from using limes or grapefruit. We have a nice blander that pulverises anything we put in it and thats handy and we throw the whole lemon or lime into it, and sure, the garlic too so the sause is smoot hand with ZERO bits in it.
