Chilli & Mint Marinade

This great little marinade is perfect for those who need to make dinner in a hurry but want something to add a little pizzaz to your steak or chicken. This marinade is brushed over your meat at the END of cooking, just before serving. It is freshy, zangy and bursting full of yumminess! Give it a go! Super easy to make!

{Great with any type of meat such as beef or chicken}


Handful of mint leaves - finely chopped
1 x medium sized chilli - finely diced (you can use any type of chilli depending on how hot you like it)
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon of sugar
3-4 tablespoons of good quality olive oil


1. Add mint leaves, chilli, garlic and lemon zest into a mortar and pestle and grind until slightly broken down and a rough paste forms.
2. Add lemon juice, sugar olive oil and salt & pepper. Mix together. Taste and adjust sweetness or tangyness to your liking.
3. Using a spoon or pastry brush, brush your cooked meat with the marinade.

If you want to use this as a dressing add a little bit more lemon juice and oil to create a runnier consistency and drizzle over salad.
