I am making a marinade for some lamb chops...recipe calls for .5 cup olive oil, .5 cup lemon juice. I only have .25 cup olive oil.....any suggestion as to what to do? Just make less marinade? is there a substitution I can use?
Just use what you have. Oil as a marinade doesn't really impart that much flavor anyway. With something as flavorful as lamb, you'll never be able to tell the difference.
I would just use the olive oil plus canola, or whatever I had on hand. (Don't worry, we won't tell!)
Why don't you make less and see if it's enough? If it isn't, you can always make additional marinade with some other oil, though you will lose that olive flavor.
