5 Easy Barbecue Marinades Full of Flavor

Mediterranean-Style Marinade

Lemon, garlic, and olive oil

This Mediterranean combo is excellent for dressing grilled vegetables and marinating fish and chicken. For best results, mince garlic finely and combine with one part fresh lemon juice and three parts oil. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Asian-Style Steak Marinade

Soy sauce, sesame oil, and scallions

The umami in this marinade makes it optimal for meats, shrimp and earthy vegetables like mushrooms and eggplant. Use 2 teaspoons of sesame oil for every 1/2 cup of soy sauce. Mix with plenty of chopped scallions. For a sweet and sour variation, mix a tablespoon of brown sugar into your marinade.

Indian-Style Marinade

Yogurt, chilies and garam masala

This Indian-inspired marinade is a great option for meats and chicken, as the acid in the yogurt helps tenderize meats. Puree the yogurt, a teaspoon or two of garam masala, a pinch of salt and as many chilies as you'd like.

Latin-Style Marinade

Sour orange, olive oil and adobo

Adobo is a seasoning used throughout Latin America. It contains a blend of garlic powder, cumin, black pepper, salt and other spices. Combined with the juice of freshly squeezed sour oranges and olive oil, it makes a great marinade for fish and chicken. Use one part orange juice to three parts oil.

Easy Marinade For Beer Lovers

Beer, herbs, ginger and garlic

Beer makes a refreshing marinade for shrimp and vegetables. Puree garlic, ginger and any herbs from your garden with a bit of water. Add the beer and some salt. This is an easy marinade that you can also use to steam your food.
