All Purpose Lime Marinade
August 07, 2009

Pretty good. I was looking for a really "limey" marinade and this did ok. I used 3 fresh limes which made about the right amount per the recipe. However, I found it wasn't limey time I might use lime zest as well. You can leave out the green onions...there's enough onion and garlic in terriaki to cover that. And that amount of additional ginger seemed like overkill considering terriaki has ginger as well. I left most of the extra ginger out. As for amount of time in the actual marinade, 1 hour per side of CHICKEN breasts was perfect. However, for thinner cuts of BEEF/steak, I would cut that in half, as that amount of time started to pulverize the meat. If your steak is a thicker cut, you might get away with 45 or 60 minutes a side but no more than that! As for taste with the beef, it was perfect. So this recipe did ok for what it was supposed to be...however, I was looking for minimal garlic and onions and I should've remembered terraki is full of them. I think I might experiment with just plain lime juice (and a little zest) next time with the ginger?
