Lets kick up tonight's dinner flavor! I enjoy this with chicken but can be used with all types of meat including prawns or shrimp.
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1 teaspoon lime rind, grated
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons oregano, dried
- 1 teaspoon cumin, ground
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
- Mix all the ingredients in a glass bowl, add 4 servings of meat (1lb boneless or 2 lbs bone-in). Mix to combine, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours (if using seafood marinate for only 30 minutes).
I loved the freshness of this marinade at it smelled wonderful. Used it on 1 lb of large shrimp. Marinated it for 1 hour. There was sincerely no flavor to the shrimp and we ended up dunking them in salsa. I definitely recommend adding salt and I would stick with chicken or another meat that can marinate longer for more flavor. Made for Recipe Swap March 2010.
Wow! I absolutely love the flavor of this marinade! I used it to marinate some chicken for 5 hours and then grilled it. Still turned out rather tough, but I think that has to do with 1) my grill and 2) no oil in the marinade. Not sure, though. I'll be making it again and maybe use my foreman grill to see if it helps. The flavor was kickin! Thanks!
