Korean Barbeque Marinade

Summer is almost here!  I have the grill cleaned off and revved up to go.  If you are like me, you are always looking for new ways to kick the grill up a notch.  I am always on the look out for new marinades and grill recipes.  Here is one that I have been playing with and I think it has turned out pretty well.  I have used it on chicken, flank steak (we love bison instead of beef), and shrimp.  I have a friend that uses this on grilled salmon and loves it.  Give it a try – it might just become your favorite.

5 large cloves of garlic, finely minced

1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes
