Sticky, sweet, golden honey syrup combined with a bright, savoury, slightly spicy mustard is a marinade mix made in cooking heaven. The sweetness of the golden honey highlights the salty, spicy, and tangy flavour notes of the creamy mustard for a burst of palate-pleasing flavour. The only thing better than the bright, bold, delicious flavours a honey mustard marinade brings is how quick and simple it is to make at home.
Homemade Honey and Mustard Marinade
Homemade marinades always bring a flare of fun to the kitchen, allowing you to find flavourful combinations that will bring your meals to life. There are a few ways to go about creating your own perfect marinade mix, but they all start with quality ingredients.
How Do I Make My Own Homemade Honey and Mustard Marinade?
There are 3 main ingredients you need to make a delicious marinade:
- An oil - e.g. olive oil
- An acid - e.g. vinegar
- seasoning - e.g. salt and spices
With these 3 ingredients as your base, you have all you need to make marinade magic. Mix, add or swap in your favourite versions of these ingredients to create new and exciting flavour profiles you love. For example, you could use lemon juice in place of regular white wine vinegar for extra zesty flavour, or add some chilli seeds for a bite of heat.
