Mediterranean Grill Sauce

Mediterranean Grill Sauce

Yields enough sauce to marinade 2 lbs of meat!

Great to use with Chicken, Pork, Shrimp or White Fish!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup, Green Olives (pickled), diced
  • 1/4 Cup, Calamata Olives (pickled), Diced
  • 1.5 Cups, Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 Cup, Olive Oil
  • 1/3 Cup, Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup, Honey
  • 4 Cloves Fresh Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Capers, Chopped
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 2 tsp Dried Basil
  • 3 Tbsp, Water
  • 1 tsp, Salt - Or more, to taste
  • 2 tsp, Red Pepper Flakes - or more, to taste

How To:

  1. Add all ingredients to blender in order, as listed above.
  2. Blend on Medium-low for 30 seconds, or until olives are chopped enough and dispersed throughout mixture. (It will be "chunky")
  3. Once mixture is blended, place meat in a zip lock bag or bowl & pour marinade over top. Let meat marinade for at least an hour, before grilling. Do not marinade for more than 24 hours.
  4. Be sure baste your meat while grilling, with any leftover marinade! Also - when grilling marinated meats, it is always best to avoid direct heat while cooking. This can easily be resolved by using tin-foil, if you do not have a grill tray/basket or the ability to adjust your grates.

Marinade can be made ahead of time and placed in a jar or zip lock bag.

Separation will occur, so be sure to shake vigorously or pop back into the blender for a few pulses.
