I really enjoyed the flavors but DH didn't care for it. I did omit the oils in the marinade and the mint only because I didn't have any mint available. This is very easy to prepare. I'm keeping it for just me when DH is out of town. Thanks for posting. :)
We really enjoyed these. I substituted cress for the mint on the garnish plate, as I don't care for mint, but otherwise made as written. This is a really good marinade, and will definitely be made again. Made for the Seasoned Sailor and his Sassy Sirens, ZWT6.
