THIS GIVEAWAY is now CLOSED. Congrats to Kristin & her comment: “Hmmm, I think one of my all time favorite marinade sauces is a white wine and terriyaki combination I came up with. I love to use it on chicken and then use the chicken to make a delish chicken salad.”- You won! I have emailed you! Thanks everyone for entering, and stay tuned to more future giveaways!
Do you ever have those nights where you want something delicious, but you’ve forgotten to run to the store, and your husband will be home in like, 25 minutes, and your 3 year old is running around, still un-potty trained saying Oh My God Mommmmm-mmmeee (and you know for a fact you never ever say that yourself), and you know what else? You’re Pooped? No? Me either. But if I did, this marinade would come in pretty freaking handy.
Lawry’s – you’ve seen in it in the store, I’m sure. But they have some new flavors, and I was fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of a couple of them thanks to Lawry’s and MyBlogSpark. The one we pulled out to use was their new Szechuan Sweet & Sour BBQ Marinade, which with a little taste test from the bottle led me to believe it would be a little sweet, a little sour, and a little bit – hawwt. Just a little. Yummy. But the real test came after brushing it on skewers of unpeeled shrimp and scallops, and hitting it with the grill.
To be a bottle marinade, I was really surprised by the intensity of the flavor. It didn’t taste like other marinades we’ve tried – it actually HAD FLAVOR. It suited the shrimp perfectly, and served with a nice fried rice and grilled veggies we were eating quick and delicious. A very happy camper here. Even happier that according to Lawry’s, they’ve got some great new flavor combos as well, and I am kind of excited to try them out soon! Which one do you think sounds the best? (Me, I’m leaning towards the Applewood and Plum, I think it would be amazing on Pork Chops and a few apple or pear slices….yummmm. Cilantro & Lime will be in my repertoire as well – nothing is better on chicken in my opinion!)
- Applewood & Plum – Juicy plums accent smoky applewood and add flair to all-American barbecue.
- Cilantro & Lime – Cutting across the diverse cuisines, this bright and zingy pair is a refreshing taste of summertime.
- Rosemary & Fig – Figs are an unexpected and regionally inspired match for aromatic rosemary.
- Chipotle & Maple – This culinary comingling deliver a fresh take on smoky, spicy and sweet.
- Brown Sugar & Bourbon – This duo brings a delicious dose of Southern charm to the patio.
- Cinnamon & Coffee – Bold and confident – with just the right edge of bitterness.
- Red Chili Sauce & Mango – The flavor of mango takes hot or sweet red chili sauce far beyond mere “condiment status.”
- Which one do you think? Don’t they sound good? Well, how would you feel about trying a couple of flavors for free? Sound good? How about if we threw in a nice set of metal skewers?
- Would the addition of a covered glass baking/marinating dish seal the deal? It would? Then you’re in luck!!
- Just tell me here – do you have a secret or helpful grilling tip to share? A marinade you can’t live without, a trick that really makes a difference? Share it here! I’ll pick an entry at random to win the Lawry’s Get Grilling kit at 11pm on September 5, and your kit will be sent out soon! Good Luck, and feel free to share this post with your friends!
