This Ginger Soy Sauce Marinade gives all the flavor (and more!) of a bottled sauce and is easy to make and better for your health.
Most bottled marinades are full of chemicals which do your body no good at all.
The marinade is a cinch to make. Just combine all the ingredients and whisk away. It is a perfect choice for any proteins that you will be grilling. Great with shish kebabs, roasts…even as a salad dressing for a fresh and tangy taste.
The maple syrup gives it just a hint of sweetness that is delightful. The chives give it a slight onion flavor without being too strong. All in all, just delightful! (Chives are super easy to grow. See my tips for growing chives here.)
I plan to marinade a roast in it for dinner tonight. Stay tuned to see how I like it this way!
**Vegans take note: this is a vegan dish too. I used it the other night on vegetable shish kebabs and grilled them on the stove top on a grilling pan and my meat eating husband was very impressed.
