Recipe Testers' Reviews
This delicious marinade takes all of 12 seconds to throw together. Okay—more like 1 minute with the fresh herbs to chop. Anyway, it’s composed of fresh lemon juice, garlic, parsley, oregano, rosemary, thyme, basil, and oil. Sound good? Well, it is. It’s awesome with grilled chicken but next time I must try it on grilled shrimp. It’s so light and refreshing and a lovely change from heavier sauces. Especially nice in the heat of summer. If I had scallops or squid on hand they’d be drinking up this marinade.
