Lemon Marinade

Use this marinade for chicken or pork (marinate in fridge up to 12 hours) or for fish or seafood (marinate in fridge for 15 minutes). This makes enough marinade for 1pound of meat.

1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken or vegetable broth)
2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon rind
2 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon fresh or 1 teaspoon dried herb of your choice (tarragon, oregano, thyme,
basil, rosemary, sage etc.)

Whisk the ingredients together until well combined. Put the meat in a plastic zip bag, pour the marinade over the meat, zip the bag, and lightly massage the meat to evenly distribute the marinade. When ready to cook the meat, remove it from the marinade and discard the marinade, or put it in a small saucepan and boil it for 1-2 minutes and serve with the meat.

Note: DO NOT use the marinade as a sauce until you boil it to kill any cooties.
