Spicy Marinade

There’s no reason to buy a packaged marinade when you’ve got a recipe like this.

First, it falls into one of our favorite recipe categories: Five ingredients or less. Very few ingredients, in turn, means very few minutes spent making it.

And it’s got a crowd-pleasing flavor profile that takes any protein—chicken, fish, or tofu, for example—from bland to super tasty.

Celiac-friendly chef tip: Substitute tamari or liquid aminos for the soy sauce to make it gluten-free.

It’s fast, simple, and flavorful, and is something you can learn to make once and then use for a million different meals. Plus, cayenne pepper contains a substance called capsaicin, which is known for its many health benefits. It’s also what adds that fiery, delicious flavor.
