Ginger-Mushroom Marinade

Just had this on some halibut that Dad made and he said he winged it. Would try on halibut again, or perhaps even tofu. Good for anything mildly flavoured. Maybe it would work in a stir-fry?

Basics (no real measurements, just eyeball it):
- olive oil
- balsamic vinegar
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- a couple inches of ginger, minced
- healthy dose of mushroom sauce*

*The mushroom sauce was in the cupboard from when I was looking for vegan alternatives to fish sauce. I think this was the main flavour that caught my attention and that I couldn't place (thus prompting me to ask what was in the marinade). I'm glad to have found another way to use the mushroom sauce!

Very good, but don't skip the mushroom sauce.
