When life gets busy, it can be difficult to find time to make dinner. These marinades can make your busy weeknights easier or even take center stage for your weekend entertaining. Read on for some great recipes that can help you with convenient meal prep.
The Basics of Marinades
To begin, effective marinades should always consist of these 3 elements: an acid, such as vinegar, wine, citrus juice, or yogurt; a fat, such as olive oil, coconut milk, or other vegetable oil; and seasonings, such as aromatics, salt, citrus zest, chile peppers, or even sugars.
Acids help break down the proteins, which allows the flavor to penetrate. Fats help keep the proteins moist. Seasonings add flavor. A good rule of thumb for proportions is to combine 3 parts fat with 1 part acid and then season to taste.
