I*think* this came from Sunset Magazine. There's nothing hot in the ingredient list, but it would be real easy to put some cayenne or mashed up chili peppers in the marinade. Probably more authentic as well.

Pound the garlic, shallot, galangal and lemon grass to a paste in a mortar with a pinch of salt. Transfer to a shallow bowl and stir in the lemon juice, soy sauce and wine.
