Grilling season!

Itís that time of the year - everyone wants to be outside.
Grilling is a great tradition that allows you to enjoy the weather and your company instead of cooking over the stove. Daregal fresh frozen herbs and spices are all that is needed to bring out the true taste and flavor of whatever you're preparing. And, there's just nothing better than something cooked outdoors.
The methods for grilling with herbs are as varied as the meats, fish and vegetables themselves. Toss them in marinades, thread them with skewers, put on a grilling tray, or pop them in foil packets flavored with Daregal herbs.
We prepared a few recipes with Daregal grilling blend, which is a mix of Thyme, Rosemary, Savory, and Italian Parsley.

A few useful tips before we begin:

- Herbs and spices should be used before the meat, fish and vegetables are placed on the grill.

- Wash the vegetables thoroughly, but do not dry them.

- If using foil, make sure that the foil is sealed before placing the package on the grill.

- If desired, fish or meats can be marinated in oil, wine, and herb sauces, which improve the taste and have a tenderizing effect. After marinating, the fish or meat must be dried prior to grilling, as oily foods causes flare-ups and tends to burn.
