Basic Marinade Formula by buzzfeed: ACID (but not too much) eg: vinegar, lemon/lime/orange juice, wine, buttermilk, or yogurt (why: tenderize protein to let the other flavor-enhancing ingredients get in there) + SALT or soy sauce (why: also tenderizes) + OIL eg, olive oil, canola oil (why: helps release the flavor of spices or herbs and hold them in contact with the meat) + HERBS/SEASONINGS/SUGAR eg, garlic, rosemary, ginger, chiles, maple syrup (why: adds flavor) + TIME #Marinade
Marinating Times by buzzfeed: A longer marinade isn't always better — but it usually is. For dark proteins — beef, lamb, pork — longer is always better. BUT, if the food is delicate — shrimp, flaky fish — stop marinating after 15 or 30 minutes or the acid will start to break down the protein too much. Chicken is somewhere in the middle, anywhere from 2 to 12 hours is good depending on the cut (skin-on breasts require less time, for example). #Infographic #Marinating_Times
