We love to grill, and this is great on all seafood, chicken, or pork. Summer is short here in Alaska so we grill a lot when we can.

How to Make Marinate for white meat, shrimp, halibut, or chicken


  1. add all ingredients to 1 gallon ziplock bag. add meat, sealing bag with as little air in bag as possible. refrigerate for at least 4 hours, turning every hour or so.
  2. I usually put down heavy duty foil on the BBQ grill and put the chicken down and grill on medium high grill (375*) for 8-10 min. on each side, making sure to brown each side nicely. If using shrimp, I add 1 tsp. pepper flakes to marinate, and put on metal skewers and skipping the foil and just grill enough to heat through and get nice grill marks on both sides. I do not use raw shrimp. Salt is usually on the table for those who want it. I never need it. I serve with steamed jasmine rice and a nice salad and crusty bread.
  3. if you want to use bamboo skewers, soak for 1 hour in warm water, so they won't burn. If I add pineapple juice to marinate, then I add pineapple chunks between the meat on the skewer and grill.
