  1. Fantastic Marinade. Made it twice - once with for grilled chicken, once for filet of beef. Made both the Chicken and beef, moist, juicy and full of flavour!
  2. I made this two nights in a row and it turned out really well. I made it the first time as written and then with less oil and more balsamic vinegar the next time. I used zucchini, mushrooms, red and yellow pepper, vidalia onion and broccoli. Looked beautiful and tasted great! Thanks for posting.
  3. Very simple and great tasting. I doubled the recipe but made it exactly as stated. I marinated large chunks of red, yellow and orange peppers, purple onions and mushrooms for about 3 hours in the fridge. Grilled them all on the BBQ and they were wonderful.
  4. I would rate this as "okay". The marinade smelled wonderful but after about 4 hours marinading on bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms, asparagus and zucchini, I could only taste the marinade on the mushrooms. I think I would prefer just a bit of olive oil and salt next time on my vegetables.
  5. I don't get it, what's all the fuss about? this is basic blackening marinade,it adds some smoke flavor but it doesn't work well with vegetables, it sseems this would be btter on meats, it just overpowers the vegetables and all you taste is the marinade. The vegetables didn't hold of any of the flavor from teh marinade and the flavor of the marinade wasn't great anyway. This is great if you have a bland pallet, maybe you're in the midwest and are used to basic american cuisine but if you live in a big city and have eaaten Asian and indian foods before than youll know that this is nothing special.


  1. excellent marinade! I used it for chicken, and the chicken came out very moist and added a great taste. I used red wine vinegar instead of the balsalmic vinegar, and didn't have fresh basil, and it still tasted great. I'm definitely going to try it again with fresh basil.
