Rind and juice from 3 lemons

2 tbsp runny honey (you can also use golden syrup for a slightly thicker texture) – add more if you want a sweeter, stickier marinade
1 tbsp sesame seeds
Salt & pepper to season

Add the rind and juice of the lemons to a mixing bowl
Add the remaining ingredients and season with salt and pepper
Place your meat in a shallow bowl and pour the marinade over the meat
