As many of us begin searching for the perfect dairy or fish meal for the Nine Days, it seems a great time to review some of the wonderful kosher sauces and dressings that can be found in the local grocery or supermarket.
Chef Myron's (Myron's Fine Foods, Star-K parve) is a line of cooking and dipping sauces that come in eye-catching bottles and mouth-watering flavors. We used the Szechuan sauce as a marinade for grilled vegetables. It added just the right amount of kick without being too overwhelming. We also tried the Tsukeyaki sauce, which is recommended for seafood. We marinated salmon for two minutes and then broiled it. The hint of lemon added to the ginger sauce gave it a wonderful flavor. They also have sauces for meat and poultry and dipping sauce for vegetables. For more information and recipe ideas visit their website at www.chefmyrons.com.
Lucini (Lucini Italia Company, Star-K parve) produces a line of authentic Italian oils and vinegars that are beyond compare. We tried the Premium Select Extra Virigin olive oil as a dressing on salads and loved the taste. We used a light coating for frying and saut?ing and were surprised at how much the flavor of the foods was enhanced. In our home we only use olive oil for cooking; now we will always reach for Lucini first. For more information and a complete product listing, visit their website at www.lucini.com.
Chef Cary Randall's (Cary Randalls, OU parve and dairy) dairy free Real Caesar dressing is just one of the incredible dressings and sauces produced by an incredible company. With an eye for what consumers really want, they have produced healthy, light, fat-free salad dressings that taste as good as they look. We have tried Honey Mustard, Roasted Garlic and the Carrot Wasabi Ginger and found each one better than the other. The sauces can be also be used as marinades for fish and poultry or use the Roasted Red Pepper the next time you make pasta. The two latest products in their line are barbecue sauces in original and Chipolte Mango. We recommend having both on hand the next time you grill ? you will be surprised how much flavor is added to your food. They can be found on the web at www.caryrandalls.com.
Beigel's (I. Beigel Baking Company) is famous for their cake, cookies and rugelach. For more than five generations their pastries have graced Shabbos tables in thousands of Jewish homes. Today, they offer a whole new product line. They have recently purchased the world-renowned Windmill Farms Organic Bread company, which makes challahs and bread baked with only pure and natural products ? never treated with chemicals of any kind. We tried the whole wheat challah and rolls, and even the most finicky of our children came back for seconds.
For a perfect Nine Days, a piece of salmon or halibut grilled or broiled (after marinating of course), a large tossed salad (with oil or dressing) and a toasted whole wheat roll. What could be better?
That's all for now. Next month ? on the road again for more perfect snacks.
