GET THE MOST OUT OF GRILLED FOOD
Make up tasty marinades to flavor your meats and fish.
Never reuse leftover marinades in which raw fish or meat has been sitting.
Always cover and refrigerate marinated food until you're ready to cook. Then bring the food almost to room temperature just before grilling so it'll cook more evenly."
For meats: Try balsamic vinegar, freshly squeezed orange juice or wine mixed with ingredients like shallots or onions, mustard, garlic, ginger, rosemary and pepper.
For fish: Rub fish with oil and garlic paste before grilling. Serve with wedges of lemon or lime to add a zesty flavor.
