Lime, Ginger & Yogurt Marinade

Yield: Yields 1 cup, enough for 1-1/2 to 2 lb. meat.

Ingredients

  • 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 11/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lime juice

Preparation

  • Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl. Combine the marinade and meat in a zip-top bag and refrigerate, turning occasionally. As a general rule, marinate shrimp, scallops, and fish for 30 to 40 minutes, chicken, beef, pork and lamb for at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours or overnight. Don’t let meat sit in a yogurt marinade for more than 12 hours, as it will turn mushy.
