Let's marinade something

I pulled these marinades from, wait for it, the Weight Watchers website a while back. Super tasty, speedy, use
them to marinate or stir fry your vegies. 

Chilli and honey
Makes: ⅓ cup
Delicious with pork. Combine 1 chopped fresh red birdseye chilli, 2 tbs honey, ¼ cup fresh lime juice and 2 tsp grated fresh ginger.

Indian spice mix
Makes: ⅓ cup
Great on lamb, beef or chicken. Combine 2 tbs ground cumin, 2 tbs ground coriander, 1 tbs ground fennel, 2 tsp garam masala and 2 tsp ground chilli in an airtight container.

Lemon wasabi
Makes: ¼ cup
Try this marinade on prawns, fish or chicken. Combine 2 tbs fresh lemon juice, 1 tbs wasabi paste, 1 tbs fish sauce and 1 tsp sesame oil.

Minted yoghurt
Makes: ¾ cup
Will tenderise and add flavour to lamb, prawns or chicken. Combine 1 crushed garlic clove, 200g no-fat yoghurt and ¼ cup chopped fresh mint.

Rice vinegar and soy
Makes: ⅓ cup
A good match with tuna. Combine 2 tbs rice vinegar, 2 tbs soy sauce, 1 crushed garlic clove, 2 tbs chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley and 2 tbs chopped fresh dill.
