With BBQ season starting… marinades are a great way to create flavorful and tender meat. There are lots of different options to flavor the meat, place it in the fridge to marinate then pull out just before you are ready to grill add a side and you’ve got an amazingly easy meal.

2 Tbsp ground cumin
2 Tbsp ground coriander
