This shop received free product from Gourmet Warehouse in order to review.  The recipe and all opinions are my own.

I had recently been contacted by Gourmet Warehouse to see if I wanted to try their products and if so, would I be willing to create some recipes using their gourmet marinades, spice rubs, and sauces. I absolutely love BBQ so I enthusiastically said yes!! Gourmet Warehouse is a small company based in Hilton Head, South Carolina that produces handcrafted gourmet BBQ products. I received a few different products in the mail and was so excited to try them!

The first I decided to try was the Sesame Ginger Marinade and as soon as I opened the bottle, I knew I had a winner! The smell was mouth-watering! The product label said it can be used on seafood, chicken, or beef, and since I had chicken defrosting, I decided to go that route. Since it was the end of the week, I also had odds and ends hanging about in my fridge…cut up veggies, leftover rice, and some grilled button mushrooms. Leftover rice never has the same fluffy quality to it the next day, but what it lacks in fluffiness, it makes up in its ability to make the most delicious fried rice!

This dinner only took about 15 minutes from start to finish, and it blew me away. It was SO flavorful and delicious! It required no seasoning at all due to the great flavor in the marinade. Since this dish turned out so well, I cannot wait to try more of my Gourmet Warehouse Products!
