Marinade for Meat, Poultry or Fish

READY IN: 2hrs 5mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

I have used this marinade for pork loin, chicken, and salmon and it is great with all of them! You can increase the quantities of ingredients, but this smaller amount is just perfect for us, since most of the time it's just the two of us! Cook time is marinade time.

I marinated our chicken for 4 hours then grilled. Excellent! I can't wait to try it on some salmon! Thank you!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I use Crisco)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar (I used Sugar Twin brown sugar to keep the calories down)
  • 12 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced (fresh is better though) or 14 teaspoon dried ginger (fresh is better though)


  1. Combine all ingredients and whisk well.
  2. Add item to be marinated and turn to cover each side.
  3. Refrigerate, covered, for several hours, turning item to be marinated several times.
  4. Broil or grill marinated item to your taste!
