Chef's Tips

Marinades consist of 3 parts: an acid, an oil, and a flavoring agent. Try using different vinegars, citruses oils, and herbs to adjust your flavor profile.
Marinating proteins in a container without air helps to speed up the marinating process and imparts maximum flavor.
Always discard any marinade that has come in contact with raw protein.
