CITRUS GRILLING MARINADE — Whatever you choose to grill this summer–from chicken and seafood to fresh vegetables–this spicy, tangy marinade makes it all taste better!
We do a lot of grilling during the hot summer months, and this Citrus Grilling Marinade is one of our favorite, all-purpose solutions for grilling almost anything.
In fact, I often mix up a double batch of this marinade and keep it in a glass jar in the refrigerator so we can use it on whatever we happen to be grilling for dinner that day.
This tangy marinade, with both orange and lime juice, adds great flavor to almost any type of meat. We’ve even used it on grilled vegetables and they came out so fresh and delicious.
Our very favorite thing to do with this marinade is to use it to grill beef, chicken or pork, then shred or cut the meat into bite size portions and make tacos.
Like most marinade recipes, this one is easily adaptable, so feel free to play around with the seasonings, add some fresh herbs, or additional cayenne or red pepper flakes for a spicier marinade.
This marinade will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator, so it’s super easy to prep it ahead of time so it’s ready to go.
Everything I make with this Citrus Grilling Marinade has been a huge hit with my family. I hope you love it as much as we do!
