Marinades are either acidic or enzymatic. In addition to these ingredients, marinades often contains oils, herbs, and spices to further flavour the food items. Recipes include Teriyaki Marinade. Steak Marinade and Chimichurri Marinade. Also, you can use them to baste the meat or fish whilst it is cooking to further enhance the flavour.
