Tequila Lime, Orange, Margarita Marinade for Fish and Chicken

Tequila Lime, Orange, Margarita Marinade for Fish and Chicken

Make this quick marinade for chicken or fish by combining limes, oranges and tequila. You can substitute orange juice for the tequila but the tequila does give this simple marinade a uniquely Mexicana flare. Use a tequila that you would also drink, just like when adding wine to any dish. I’m a fan of aged tequilas, reposado or añejo for sipping and cooking. My favorite is Casadores.

Marinade fish or chicken for a tasty grilled or baked Baja meal

One sheet pan meal idea.
I marinaded my salmon for 20 minutes and baked it on a baking sheet with asparagus at 350 for 20 minutes. The marinade adds a slightly sweet glaze to the salmon. I think tequila lime marinade would be tasty on grilled fresh red snapper, halibut or dorado.

Delicious grilled chicken.
Marinade chicken pieces for 30 minutes to 6 hours. Grill on indirect moderate heat because the sugar can burn. Toss on zucchini slices and corn on the cob for a complete BBQ fiesta.
 

Of course having a pitcher of perfect margaritas would be a welcome addition to any BBQ.
