The Only Summer Marinade You Need...Plus a Few Others!
View this email in your browser

Grab your wire brush and give that grill a scrub. Scrub like you mean it, because we're heading into grilling season.

And when there's grilling, marinating is usually not far behind. Marinades are brilliant because essentially you can take any kind of meat or fish or seafood you like, give it a soak, and you've turned a plain something into a great dinner. Here are some guidelines for marinating success.

And here is probably my favorite marinade: If I don't have a jar of this waiting in the fridge at all times, I feel a little anxious. If you are going to make just one marinade this summer, this is it.
Dijon, Garlic, and Lemon Marinade
Makes 2/3 cup

Perfect for chicken, pork, shrimp, and any kind of fish. The mustard helps emulsify the marinade, making it thicker so it really clings to the food. Serve wherever you marinate and grill with a Garlicky Garden Pasta Salad, or a Modern Greek Salad.
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 shallots, minced
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
3 lemons, zested and juiced
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Put the olive oil, shallots, garlic, lemon zest and juice, mustard, and salt and pepper in a bowl or a jar with a lid. Whisk or shake to combine well.
Now that I've told you that this is the only marinade you'll ever need, I'll still give you four others to try.

1. Ginger, Mint, and Lime Marinade         2. Indian Curry Yogurt Marinade

3. Spicy Sesame Asian Marinade               4. Jamaican Jerk-Style Marinade


And we're off to the grilling races.

Best Wishes,
