    Oil and Vinegar Marinades

    An olive oil marinade may be blended at home or purchased in a complete form from the grocery store. Olive oil serves as a binding agent that blends the different flavors of the marinade together and adheres them to the meat or vegetables being cooked.
    A tenderizing agent should also be included in the marinade, that softens the meat or the vegetables before they are cooked. This can take the form of a vinegar, a citrus juice, or an alcohol. These ingredients should generally be blended in equal measure to the olive oil to create a rich and powerful flavor.

    Even tender foods like fish and seafood can benefit from a good marinade.
    Marinades keep fish and seafood from drying out and the oil in the marinade helps keep them from sticking.

    Have a problem with chicken drying out on the grill? A good poultry marinade will not only help prevent meats from drying out, but also protects the more delicate pieces while adding extra flavor. When marinating poultry, makes sure to the separate pieces, allowing the marinade to reach as much of the meat as possible. Skinless, boneless chicken breasts can be marinated in as little as 30 minutes while a whole chicken needs between 6 to 8 hours.

    Tougher cuts of beef need a strong marinade and time for it to work. Tender cuts of beef may not need to be marinated for tenderness but the flavor and healthy benefits are still there
