A versatile marinade for almost any fresh ingredient.

Serving Size
125 ml
Ingredients
60 ml olive or canola oil
45 ml lemon juice
15 ml finely grated lemon rind
10 ml each freshly chopped rosemary, thyme, origanum and parsley
black pepper to taste
Method

1.  Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and season with black pepper. Only season meat once ready to braai, with no more than
1½ tsp (7,5 ml) salt per kilogram meat.
2.  Place the meat, chicken or fish in the bowl and mix well with the marinade to make sure that it is well coated.
3.  Allow to marinate for 1 - 2 hours or overnight in the fridge. Fish should not marinate for more than 30 minutes.
4.  Braai over medium coals until cooked to your preference. Cooking time will depend on the type of meat used. Brush with any extra marinade while braaiing.

TIP:

Tips
1. Use dried herbs if preferred, but only use ½ - 1 tsp (2,5 - 5 ml) each. Or choose your favourite herbs, using 8 tsp (40 ml) fresh or 4 tsp (20 ml) dried.
2. This marinade is best to be made and used straight away, as the fresh herbs tend to discolour after some time.
3. Replace half the lemon juice and rind with orange juice and rind.
4. Salad ingredients, like cucumber, green beans, tomatoes and even avocado will be delicious with this marinade as a dressing. Or serve over lightly cooked green veggies.
5. Toss butternut, baby marrows or veggies of your choice in the dressing and roast at 180 ˚C.
