Citrus Marinades for Meat, Poultry and Seafood

Creating a homemade fruit marinade for beef, pork, poultry or seafood is both rewarding and delicious. Making a citrus marinade with the fresh squeezed juices of Valencia oranges, honeybells, tangerines and grapefruit tastes so much better than store-bought marinades. Any citrus marinade recipe can be adapted so cooks can create a flavorful marinade using their favorite citrus juices. Whether a grapefruit marinade or orange marinade, these homemade sauces flavor steaks, pork chops, chicken or shrimp just the way you like them.

A traditional fruit marinade typically consists of the juice of oranges. An orange juice marinade is often flavored with garlic, soy sauce, honey, salt and spices. The great thing about a citrus marinade recipe is that the marinade can be prepared ahead of time – a few hours or a day or so. The citrus fruit marinade slowly marinates the meat, fish or chicken and when it’s time to grill, broil or cook on the stovetop, everything’s ready to go.

Traditional dishes using a fruit marinade include chicken and pork. Using citrus marinade for these two meats is common in many Asian and Mexican entrees. A type of orange marinade, called a glaze, is often used to create a citrus-glazed ham. Today, a citrus marinade recipe can be found for any type of entree, whether it's beef, pork, poultry or seafood.

A fruit marinade for beef is a great way to prepare favorite steaks, tenderloins or kebabs, especially when grilling. A citrus marinade for beef is often an orange juice marinade using the juices of Valencia oranges, or it can be prepared by cooking orange wedges in oil and garlic. An orange steak marinade is great for skirt steaks and sirloin steaks. Try a regional citrus marinade recipe for spicy orange beef or a Baja citrus marinade to really spice things up.
