BBQ Marinade Recipes

  1. 1. Best Barbecue Marinade RecipesMarinating meat and fish for the barbecue makes the food taste even more delicious than itnormally would. Many marinades can be mixed up quickly using easy to find off-the-shelfingredients and though some recipes call for overnight marinating, many can be added 20minutes before barbecuing or even as you cook.Marinades boost flavour and stop the meat from drying out. This is because, as the meatcooks, it absorbs the marinade liquid, which keeps it moist and tender.To get the most from your marinade, put the meat in re-sealable freezer bags with themarinade liquid and place in the fridge. Allow at least an hour for the marinade to really givethe food an extra infusion of flavour. For softer, more tender foods such as chicken orseafood, much less time is needed, usually less than 50 minutes.There are so many tempting recipes that it’s often hard to narrow down the selection, buthaving sifted through a great many, here are some marvelous marinades… all you have todo is mix the ingredients together, add to the meat and then put it on one of the BBQs.For BeefBeef is a barbeque staple but choose your cuts carefully. Thin strips of beef work best withmarinades. Meat that is thicker at one end than at the other will not cook evenly and can bedifficult to cook well on a barbecue.Beef works wonderfully with marinades and can be combined with lots of different types offlavour and cuisine, from traditional American recipes to Asian style barbecue dishes.Try these marinades, leaving in the fridge overnight if possible or for at least an hour: Teriyaki Beef MarinadeThis is a fantastic Japanese marinade that really works with beef kebabs. Simply put smallpieces of beef on a skewer, add slices of green pepper or other vegetables that you like toput with beef, and marinade.1/4 cup packed light brown sugar1/4 cup soy sauce2 tablespoons lemon juice1 tablespoons light olive oil1/4 teaspoon ground ginger1 clove garlic crushed
  2. 2. Lemon and Oregano MarinadeTry this with thin cuts of steak, leaving to marinade for around 1 ½ - 2 hours. It’s absolutelydelicious and produces a fresh, zingy flavour, which is fantastic on a warm summer’s day.Barbecues and juicy steaks, does it get better?1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil1 tablespoon lemon juice2 garlic cloves, crushed1 teaspoon dried oregano1 tablespoon fresh thyme leavesFor Lamb Honey Soy GlazeThis marinade works well with lamb loin chops. It’s quick to do and just requires you to coatthe meat so you don’t have to spend a long time leaving it to marinate beforehand. Onceyou have mixed the marinade, just add it to the lamb chops, taking care to turn themaround so they are coated all over. Don’t put the lamb into the marinade as this will meanthat you can only use it for raw meat and you will want to use the excess to coat the meatas it’s cooking. Put the chops on the BBQ and turn after about four minutes, adding a littlemore glaze to the chops as they cook.¼ cup ketchup
2 tablespoons liquid honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon crushed ginger root
1 clove garlic, crushedFor Chicken Yoghurt MarinadeThis heavenly marinade is perfect with chicken. Just mix all the ingredients together, covereach piece of chicken with plenty of the marinade, put the pieces in a re-sealable bag andleave overnight in the fridge – or for at least 3 hours if preparing the marinade on the day.150ml Greek yoghurt1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped1 small green chilli, finely choppedHandful of finely chopped parsley and mint leaves2 teaspoons of salt6 cloves of garlic, crushed
  3. 3. For FishMarinating fish takes far less time than marinating meat. In fact, marinades should not beleft on fish for more than half an hour, as the fish will start to go mushy. Also, never basteyour fish with leftover marinade that’s had raw fish put into it - it could cause foodpoisoning.Fish works really well with all sorts of marinades including lemon juice and dill, or for moreexotic flavours, fresh mango and soy, or soy, lime, vinegar and oil. The teriyaki marinadedescribed earlier in this article is also delicious with fish. Lemon and Soy MarinadeThis is a taste-tingling marinade, which is ideal with salmon fillets. Just mix all theingredients together, coat the salmon with the marinade and put the fillets on thebarbecue. Keep basting the salmon with the marinade as it’s cooking.3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon snipped fresh or dried basil1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic,
 crushed1/4 teaspoon pepper
