What is summer without some amazing food? Here's a special marinade recipe that is easy to whip up and will add extra flavour dimension to any meal.
Garlic & Herb Marinade – simple, flavour packed,
great for meat, chicken or fish.
6 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/3 cup fresh thyme sprigs, finely minced
1/4 cup fresh rosemary leaves, finely minced
1 1/2 tablespoons coarse salt
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups olive oil

In a bowl, thoroughly whisk all ingredients together.

covered in the fridge.
Chicken and fish should
be marinated for less

Save on Meats – Grilling on a Budget
Keep a cap on the grilling budget this summer with
these tips on buying meat.
Chicken: Buy bone-in pieces and remove the skin
yourself at home.
Hamburger & Steak: Buy family or club-store size and
freeze unused portions for the next BBQ.
Ribs: Skip the baby back and go for the pork sparerib
– they're delicious and less pricey.
A barbeque dinner can transform an ordinary evening into a magical feeling of a relaxing vacation. Happy Summer from all of us at Capital Direct!
