Choosing a seafood marinade at your local store, pay attention to the label. The more you know about the manufacturer, the more you can trust the quality of the seafood marinade. If it is your first visit to the store in a particular search of a seafood marinade, the good options can be either Zoom Seafood Marinade & Grilling Sauce, produced by Zesty Chesapeake Bay flavors, or California Seasonings Seafood Marinade.
The former is appropriate for any type of seafood, whether as a marinade, grilling or finishing sauce and contains corn oil, horseradish mustard, lemon juice, honey, garlic, herbs and black pepper.
The latter is a classic French meuniere sauce -a tender combination of white wine, lemon juice and butter. Popular in the rural French seafood cuisine, the meuniere sauce is subtle, easy to prepare and brings out the best in seafood.
The label of the California Seasonings Seafood Marinade features an original artwork with a beautiful Pigeon Point lighthouse and a lonely long-pole fisherman. The ingredients of the California Seasonings Seafood Marinade include white wine, butter, natural butter flavor, olive oil, vinegar, roasted garlic, xantan gum, lemon extract and spices. Seafood Marinade is simply warmed in a pan and poured over the finished fillet, prior to serving.
However, the preparation of the seafood marinade at home will not take much time either, and, at the same time, the recipes for marinades vary from simple to gourmet and exotic, allowing you to experiment and bring even more diversity to your homemade seafood marinades in comparison with the variety of those, available at stores.
