Yummy Basil Marinade
This is one of my favorite marinades. It is really great for seafood and chicken.
It doesn't take a lot of basil, but it packs a big flavorful punch.
You will need a blender or food processor.
20-30 fresh basil leaves- no stems
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup boiling water
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 peeled garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Put all the ingredients into the container of blender and blend until you have a smooth paste.
Now you can pour it into a jar and store in the fridge for up to 3 days or you can use it immediately.
This will make 1 cup basil marinade and will marinade 3 pounds of meat.
I'd like to thank Steven Raichlen for his marvelous recipe.
