Can vermouth be substituted for sherry in a marinade recipe?

Yes it is similar, and should produce a nice result. It's not the same though... You could also try white wine.A lot would also depend on the meat you are using. You could use Calvados for pork, or brandy for beef. I do not believe Vermouth , which is matured through herbs is in any way the same as sherry, you would definitely be better off with white wine.

You can make beef fajitas with nothing but meat. It just won't taste the same as meat that's marinated. You can use just dry spices like cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and chili powder. The marinade helps to tenderize the meat.


Can you cook with an oil-based marinade?

Technically, yes, you *can*, but, you shouldn't. Here's why: Although it is oil-based, there is a lot of stuff in there that is not oil, and a lot of it is not friendly to heat. Sugars will burn, as will garlic, spices, and herbs. Vinegar or other water-based flavorings in the marinade will boil off and evaporate, concentrating the already burned and extremely un-tasty flavors you have going. Plus, there's no need to. Cooking tightens proteins, so, no additional flavor is going to be imparted to the food. So, in conclusion, it's not tasty and it's unnecessary. If you want to use a marinade as a sauce, and get the flavor of the marinade on after it's cooked, then reserve some of the marinade BEFORE it hits the food. Some people will tell you to boil it after you take the meat, etc. out of the marinade to use as a sauce, but, it can't get hotter than boiling temperature, and some bacteria can survive 212 degrees. So, I think it's better safe than sorry. Nut, it's your choice.


Do marinades contain gluten?

It depends on what the marinade is made from, but gluten comes from grains and grains are not popular, if used at all, marinade ingredients. There might be gluten in a dry-rub, but it would, again, depend on what it was made from.

CORRECTION: Many marinades contain soy or teriyaki sauce, which is almost always made with wheat. If the label lists soy or teriyaki sauce but doesn't specify that it is gluten-free, it is probably not safe. At this time, La Choy brand products do not use wheat in their soy and teriyaki sauces unless specifically noted.

Gluten is a composite of the proteins gliadin and glutenin which, conjoined with starch, exist in the endosperms of some grass-related grains. The seeds of most flowering plants have endosperms with stored protein to nourish embryonic plants during germination, but true gluten, with gliadin and glutenin, is limited to certain members of the grass family. The stored proteins of corn and rice are sometimes called glutens, but their proteins lack glutenin. The glutenin in wheat flour gives kneaded dough its elasticity, allowing leavening and contributing chewiness to baked products.


What can be used as a substitute for ginger in a marinade for salmon?

Well it depends on what kind of marinade you want it to be.

Sometimes I bake salmon with only a light amount of olive oil and some dill weed. I also like to marinate with Ponsu Sauce and some ginger. But since you have to replace the ginger try some garlic! Can't hurt right? You can use Ginger Ale in your marinade too. I like to marinade my salmon in a light white wine. Cooking burns off the alcohol and leaves a very nice flavor.

There are a variety of ways to marinate squid, and some should be partnered with the manner in which you intend to prepare it.

I place the sliced squid (already having removed the cartilage and skin) in a bowl, fill it with enough milk to cover all of the squid, place a cover on the bowl and leave it in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours.

Where did marinades originate from?

Origin of the Word Marinade

However, originally, marinades were really just salt water, which helped to preserve the meat or fish, and of course, imparted flavor though the salt. sometimes, sea water was used, or aqua marina. It was sea water which led to the word marinade, which derives ultimately from the Latin word for the sea, mare. We also get the words marine, and maritime from this root. The verb form of the word marinate, actually appeared in English in the early 17th century, earlier than the noun marinade, which did not appear until the early 18th century. Some sources contend that the word may not have originated directly from the sea water connection but via the French word mariner or the Italian word marinare. The French mariner means "to pickle," and the Italian marinare means "to marinate." Both these word, however, refer to similar practices, since the primary purpose was to preserve or pickle. No further cooking was necessarily done. Gradually, the picking or preserving process was changed to a flavoring and tenderizing process.

So what is the most surprising fact about marinades? The more people try to debunk myths, the more myths are created and most everything you read about marinades except "they deliver flavor" is basically a myth.

No, the idea of a marinade is to infuse the meat with flavor. If you then cook it in the marinade, it will be too strong a taste. Plus, it'll boil, making it pretty tough. The exception would be braising, which is slow-cooking at a low temperature in either wine, stock, tomato sauce, or combinations of them, with some chopped aromatic vegetables and herbs. In that case, you simply brown the meat (some don't) and put into the liquid to cook. Technically, this is cooking it in a marinade.

What does marinade mean?

What is one of the components of a usual marinade?

Well... what is a "usual"marinade? A marinade can be made from anything, depending what meat you're using and what flavours you like. The aim is to infuse the meat with flavour prior to cooking, but sometimes a benefit is that the meat will be more juicy.

I find it's good to use something acidic for the base liquid - either malt or cider vinegar, lemon or lime juice, or wine. This seems to work the flavours into the meat better. Then just add whatever herbs and spices you're into! Try not to add too many, you'll overcomplicate it. If you're not a pro at mixing herbs and spices, it's best to start off with ready-made mixes, such as jerk, harissa, cajun, garam massala spices, or Italian or british herb mixes.

If, for example, you're doing chicken for the bbq, you might like to use a composition of something similar to the following:

- cider vinegar

- tomato ketchup

- chili sauce

- salt, pepper

- jerk seasoning

Have a look around on the internet. There are some good marinades out there, but as with all recipes, they are best used for IDEAS, not made exactly.
