• 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped finely (2 tablespoons dried)
• 3 tablespoons Dijon style mustard

Yogurt marinades work faster than oil counterparts. When deciding how long to marinate, consider the texture of the meat or fish. In general, open-textured flesh like fish fillets needs only a few minutes of soaking (Fish will take as little as 20 minutes). Food with a tighter texture, such as chicken, pork loin or lamb, can tolerate several hours in a marinade, even one that's mildly acidic. Marinate chicken for no more than 4 hours. Marinate beef for 6 hours, turning once or twice. DO NOT EXCEED recommended time as the meat will toughen as the acid actually "cooks" the protein.
