My favorite ingredient for creating homemade marinades is citrus. This marinade is fantastic for chicken, beef or fish, and works especially well for grilling. Marinade meat for a minimum of two hours and a maximum of eight hours.
1/2 cup orange juice (juice of 1 orange)
1/2 cup lemon juice (juice of 2 lemons)
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 1/2 inch section fresh ginger, peeled, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
Marinate chicken or fish by placing in air-tight, sealed plastic bags submerged in liquid. Marinate maximum of eight hours.
