It’s always best to marinade your meats, poultry and fish prior to cooking, it adds flavour and also helps keep it all moist and succulent to eat.

Here are three simple marinades for you to try out. All you need to do is combine all the ingredients together, bring them to the boil, allow it to go fridge cold and then leave the main ingredient to marinade in it in the fridge for a couple of hours prior to cooking.
