   This cinnamon-orange marinade, characteristic of
   Balkan cooking, is a specialty of Georgia in
   south-central Russia.  The tabaka marinade is usually
   used with chicken and game hen, but it also goes
   nicely with swordfish.
   
   Remove zest of 1 orange and the lemon.  (This is best
   done using a vegetable peeler.  Be sure to take only
   the zest, not bitter white pith beneath it.)  Juice
   oranges, lemon and limes.  Combine juice and zest in
   bowl. Peel and mince garlic and ginger root. Finely
   chop onion. Add garlic, ginger and onion to citrus
   juices along with cinnamon, paprika, sugar, salt,
   black pepper, nutmeg, wine and oil.  Whisk to mix.
   Makes enough marinade for 1 1/2 pounds chicken, game
   hens and swordfish.
