Bonus Fat Busting Tips – Flavor Bonus 1 – Marinade

The theme of these fat busting bonus tips is to add flavor without adding too many calories.

Make a Herb & Garlic Marinade

  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce (low salt version if you prefer)
  • 3 cloves of fresh garlic – finely minced
  • 1/4 (loosely packed) cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)
  • 2 hot red chillis – very finely sliced
  • 1/2 red onion – very finely sliced and then chopped
  • a few dashes of sweet chili sauce or lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together well, in a small bowl.

Can be used on chicken, fish or meat before grilling, sauteing or roasting.  Place your choice of protein in a ziplok bag, add the marinade and refrigerate  for up to 4 hours – then cook.  Discard the marinade in the bag (don’t use it for basting).
