I don’t have any pictures, but these marinades were so good and such a huge hit at our picnic this weekend, that I have to give you the recipes.

I made 3 different marinades to put over chicken, beef and shrimp. I had cubed the chicken and beef and cooked them in 2 separate grilling baskets. I cooked the shrimp on wooden skewers.

Each of these were so good. I marinaded the chicken and beef in plastic containers over night. I put the shrimp on the skewers in the morning, and set them in a baking pan to marinate for about 6-8 hours. Just whisk these together, and pour them over your meat or seafood.
