If you really want to learn how to cook, then you need to practice the concepts taught in this lesson. We've compiled some "edible exercises" along with some supporting recipes that will help reinforce what was taught in this lesson.
To practice marinating, start by making the Rosemary Grilled Chicken (recipe below). Not only is this marinade easy to put together, it is full of flavor. If you don’t like rosemary, substitute another fresh, hardy herb such as oregano or thyme. Make sure to taste the marinade and adjust it to suit your tastes.
Practice marinating by having a number of theme-inspired dinner parties. Use some of the video and/or text recipes listed below.
Practice marinating by making Puerco Pibil and Pickled Onions. Serve it with some rice (either steamed or pilaf-style), warm corn tortillas and Refried Beans (optional, of course) for an authentic Mexican meal. If you want to really test out your newly-learned marinating skills, go all out and make some fresh Scallop Ceviche for an appetizer.
Middle Eastern Night:
Practice marinating by making the Turkish Chicken Kebabs along with some Hummus, Steamed Carrots with Cumin & Walnut Oil, Traditional Moroccan Couscous and some Naane Sangak (flatbread).
Practice marinating by making Chicken Souvlaki or Greek Chicken. Serve with some yummy Lemon Potatoes, a Greek Salad, some Char-Roasted Red Peppers and some Tzatziki.
If you're feeling really adventurous, make some Spanakopita, Marinated Mushrooms or Marinated Olives to snack on at the beginning. Opa!
Southeast Asian Night:
Practice marinating by making the Southeast-Asian Pork Satays, Malaysian Satays, Indonesian Tofu and/or Lemon-Coriander Prawns. Serve with steamed or Coconut Rice and some steamed long beans.
