This has got to be one of my best marinades yet!!! It will work well for both your red and white meats. I’m not too sure about fish yet though, I’d need to try it out on the fish and I’ll advise if it works.  I used it here with t-bone steak. Like most marinades, it’s pretty easy and simple to make.
