Food black in color is hard to come by, but if truffles and squid ink pastas have taught us anything, it’s that these macabre delicacies should always be given a chance. This Black Seaweed and Ginseng Coulis is a pungent combination of authentic and fearless Asian flavors. A coulis is traditionally a French culinary term, meaning a thick sauce created from fruits or vegetables that have been pureed together. Just like the term coulis, this sauce is very versatile; use it for plating beautiful sushi rolls or as a marinade for seafood, headed to the grill.
Marinating your proteins and hearty vegetables allows you to improve your food in several ways. One, you’re of course infusing your ingredients with lots of wonderful flavors. Two, any acidity in the marinade tenderizes your meats and proteins by starting to break down some of the tougher fibers. And three, you’re giving your ingredients lots of great moisture to soak up; moisture that won’t be lost during the cooking process.
Please remember that our marinades are perishable and should be refrigerated after opening.
