Herb Mayo Marinade

"A great easy marinate for chicken, pork, and seafood. It creates a moist flavorful coating. For thicker pieces of pork and chicken, you can easily marinate over night, which works best; but thinner small pieces can be marinated 4-8 hours for the best results. Boneless skinless breasts or boneless chops are my favorites with this recipe. And, seafood - salmon, any white fish, even shrimp and scallops work very well; but shrimp and scallops shouldn't be marinated over 2 hours. Salmon and a thicker white fish can be marinated up to 4 hours. Also, fresh herbs in this recipe make a difference; but you can use dried if that is all you have. Prep time includes marinating time. This marinade will make enough for 4 large bone in breasts or thick chops; 8 smaller pieces of chicken or pork; 2 pork tenderloins; 2 lbs shrimp or scallops and 1-2 lbs fish."

Step 1

Add all the ingredients to a small bowl or plastic ziplock bag. Mix well to combine all the ingredients. Add either the chicken, pork or seafood and marinate.

Step 2

As I mentioned, thicker cuts of chicken or pork can be marinated over night; thinner cuts should be marinated 4-8 hours. And seafood 2-3 hours. This is very nice with salmon, tilapia, cod, halibut, even shrimp and scallops. This is a wonderful marinade for boneless chicken breasts.

Step 3

Bake or Grill ... Whatever method you prefer. ENJOY!

I have often used mayo on fish but the combination in this recipe is the best ever. I used all fresh herbs and was a bit generous with the cayenne. I used it on a halibut fillet that it came out so moist and tasty. Thanks KC this recipe goes to the top of my list. I will make it again and will take photos of the marinade itself. Top marks for this recipe
