    In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients. Add about 1 pound fish, 1 pound boneless chicken, about 3 1/2 pounds bone-in chicken or about 1 pound seafood; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 2
    Remove meat from marinade; reserve marinade. Grill meat as desired, brushing occasionally with marinade. Heat remaining marinade to boiling to serve as sauce with grilled meat.

Expert Tips

  • As a general rule, marinate fish fillets, seafood and vegetables about 30 minutes, pork chops and chicken at least 1 hour and larger meat cuts up to 24 hours. Turn the food once or twice during marinating time, so the marinade can reach all surfaces.
  • To use the leftover marinade as a sauce, boil it 1 minute to destroy any bacteria that may have been transferred back and forth when the marinade was brushed on the uncooked meat.
