  • FAST

Chef Bill Kim likes to use this spicy, citrus-scented marinade on steak, but it's also great on chicken and shrimp.

  1. 1/4 cup basil leaves
  2. 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  3. 8 peeled garlic cloves
  4. 2 tablespoons sambal oelek or other Asian chile sauce
  5. 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  6. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  7. 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  8. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  1. In a mini food processor, pulse the basil, cilantro, garlic, sambal oelek and fish sauce until finely chopped. Add the lemon and lime zests and oil; pulse until the marinade is fairly smooth. Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
