Need Gluten Free Marinades/bbq Sauces

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

My 6 yr old, Grace, with the help of a nutritionist, has been expanding her diet since being diagnosed in early June. For most of her little life, she ate pasta and chicken tenders...something nearly impossible to come by, gluten free, outside of the home. I'd like to get to the point where she can eat out, because she's willing to try grilled and not baked/fried meat. I've had a wonderful woman working with her to expand her diet, and halleuluiah! Grace finally likes grilled chicken, with a little seasoning on it. I'd like to introduce her to some marinades to sample with the grilled foods, but haven't had much luck in finding pre-made marinades in the supermarket that don't contain any wheat flour. I know LaChoy makes a gluten free soy sauce, but on its own, that's too strong a flavor for a little girl. Can anyone recommend some kind of marinade that I can pick up in the market that is gluten free? Maybe a honey dijon kind, honey mustard, sesame flavored, Or BBQ sauce? We have a large family and I don't often make home made marinades, but if its my only option, I can try it if there's any easy recipe. To give her several options, I'd prefer to start out with a few choices for her to try that are bottled and ready to go....so if you know of any, please share! Thanks so much for any suggestions. Emily

My seven year old likes salmon when I marinate it in 1/4 c. maple syrup and 2 T. gluten-free soy sauce/tamari, salt and pepper. Another variation of is idea includes pineapple juice. And I'm sure there are gluten-free BBQ sauces. How about olive oil, salt and pepper? Or experiment with various gluten-free salad dressings.

My kiddo likes Bone Suckin' Sauce-BBQ sauce. The original is a little thin but they have a thicker version. It's all-natural, no HFCS. Another one he likes is Organicville sesame teriyaki sauce. It's sweeetened with agave.

I eat it too as I know the bottle I have is gluten free. I could find no info on their website, but on their meats website they have meat products using their original bbq sauce and they do have gluten info on there. http://www.sweetbabyraysmeats.com/FAQ

Also I just checked my Cecelia's marketplace gluten-free grocery shopping guide 2008/2009 version (I also checked for any product updates on their website last night) and it is listed in my book as gluten free. Here are the flavors listed: Sweet Baby Ray's-Hickory & Brown Sugar, Honey, Honey Chipolte, Hot'N Spicy, original, Sweet Vadalia Onion.

San-J makes gluten free marinades. My daughter likes the Sweet & Tangy Polynesian Glazing and Dipping Sauce. They also make gluten free tamari and some other sauces. Check at your local healthier food store. We also love Annie's BBQ sauces - check for gluten free labels.

I use Sweet Baby rays as BBQ sauce too... very good stuff. I use Tamari for soy sauce and I don't think I would ever recommend using just straight tamari OR soy sauce as a marinade. Here's one that I found recently that my kids ADORE...great marinated overnight on chicken legs (or breasts) as well as to dip french fries:

Oh man...I don't have the recipe on me. here's what I remember:

1c Ketsup

3tbsp Tamari

honey (or you could use brown sugar)

garlic powder

ginger

So I would mix up the first two and then add the other ingredients to taste.

And I a bad mom...I just made fried chicken nuggets this week for dinner. So yummy you wouldn't even know they were gluten-free.


Mommy to James, who is Celiac diagnosis by blood test and confirmed by endoscopy on 9/29/2009. Our household has been gluten free since.
