Recipe: The Miracle Marinade

Whenever you are cooking it is nice to have a marinade that you can practically always have on hand and that can go on pretty much anything.  For me, this is that marinade.  It has 5 common ingredients, tastes great on any protein, and is even delicious in some pasta dishes I do.  I'll put a few of my favorite uses of it on the blog over the next couple of weeks but lets start with the marinade itself:

Miracle Marinade

6 Tablespoons Olive Oil
3-4 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
3-5 Cloves of Garlic finely minced
1/2 bunch parsley or medium palm full of dried parsley, chopped or crumbled

Whisk first three ingredients in a bow until combined into a yellowish brown sauce.  Add the garlic and parsley and stir together until incorporated.  Pour over protein of choice.

*Kitchen Note:  If you want to double or triple the marinade I start by adding more dijon and soy before increasing the amount of olive oil.  The oil can also be reduced in desired in the recipe above. After you have made it a time or two it becomes easy to eyeball for the amount of food you are making.
