  • I am so IN LOVE with the ISLAND WOODFIRE GRILL marinade. I have a stash already but continue to buy it when it goes on sale. I usually marinade for at least 24 hours. The longer the better. LOVE IT!

  • I used this to marinate tilapia before grilling and my kids loved it. We'll buy it again, for sure--we'd like to try it with shrimp skewers.
