Costa Rican Marinade

READY IN: 8hrs
Recipe by Studentchef

This is from and is good for a lot of different meats. I decided to put the minimun eight hours for marinading in the prep time, because there is no cooking involved, just the putting together of the ingredients for the marinade.

The lime really stood out this marinade. I used it on Duck breast and chicken breasts. I didn't use cilantro (DH doesn't like it)!:(
