Cooking with marinades?

I recently picked up a bottle of a locally-made coconut curry marinade at the grocery store. I'm a huge fan of cooking with marinades/salad dressings/other things you don't expect and can use instead of oil (and also putting marinades on salads... mmmm). I LOVE curry and this sauce smelled so delicious and was full of all the right ingredients, so I figured it ought to make a fantastic curry, right?

Not so much. The curry was delicious, but not all of the flavor got cooked through. Do you think this is due to my amateurism in cooking curry, or to using a marinade vs. spices? Do you have any good recipes I can make using a marinade? I've already looked in the memories. Thanks!
