No matter what your local Grilling Enthusiast Bro says, marinade mixology ain't rocket science.

Sweet, spicy and/or funky elements are optional, but never unwelcome.

Miso is a wonderfully salty paste made from fermented soybeans that packs a ton of savoury, umami flavour into a teaspoon. It's most commonly used in miso soup, but the funky seasoning can be used in a variety of delicious applications, from chip dips and sandwich spreads, to caramels and cake frostings.
