Garlic Yogurt Meat Marinade


Rich with spices and flavor, this overnight marinade can be used on any meat, from fish to steak. 


  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup plain, fresh yogurt
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste (salt-free)

Why I Love This Recipe

Using this marinade on grilled chicken made the best-tasting meal from the grill I've had in a long time! The longer I marinate the meat, the better it tastes. And leftovers are even more flavorful, if I can sneak a piece into the fridge for later.
