    Non spicy/curry/etc. meat marinade suggestions?

    What do you all marinate your meat in? My family doesn't really like spicy or Indian type spices...garlic is fine, but that's about as spicy as we go. Suggestions? Thanks!

    For fish and for poultry I like to do a marinade of chopped lemongrass, garlic, lime zest and juice and olive oil, and for red meats a base of ginger, garlic, a splash of tamari and olive oil work well. Or for fish and chicken a paste made of chopped coriander/cilantro and lime juice is delicious.

    Another one of our favourites is to mix fresh thyme, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil - delicious with pork and chicken.

    I know it isn't primal but olive oil and worcestershire sauce on red meat is great

    Watch out with Worcestershire sauce - it's got wheat in it .... I found an acceptable wheat free on, though.

    This one is best on chicken:

    2 Tbs. Lemon juice
    1 Tsp. grated ginger root
    1 Tbs. Tamari
    4 Tbs. honey
    1/2 Tsp. paprika
    1 Tsp. salt
    1 Tsp. Pepper

    Oooh, do share! I love the taste on red meat and I figure a few drops can't be too bad. But wheat-free, yeah!

    It's not proper Worcestershire sauce if it's got wheat in. Stick with the original Lea & Perrins & it should be fine.

    As a family of coeliacs, I can assure you that the Lea & Perrins elicits a reaction, and isn't gluten-free!! I wish it were, as it tastes much better - it has malt vinegar in it, which is a no-no if you're avoiding gluten.

    If you eat yogurt (and a runny goat's milk yoghurt works well with this, or a thick sheeps milk yog.)-
    Yogurt, smoked paprika, garlic, black or white pepper, a bit of lemon rind. Use like a tandoori marinade on chicken fillets/thighs/pieces, or firm white fish. Simple, doesn't taste Asian (it's more Med/Eastern Euro, I guess) and is awesome!
