Mistook Sugar for Salt

Mistook Sugar for Salt
February 10, 2019 03:06AM
In marinating two lamb shanks, realised that I added 1.5 tsp of sugar to the marinade instead of salt.

I am hoping this wont matter too much as long as I add some salt when I put it on too cook.

Any thoughts?

It will be fine. The only difference might be that if you are browning the shanks they will brown more quickly, so watch them and don't let them burn.

If the sauce for the shanks is tomato based it'll probably improve the flavour, as long as you add the salt as well.

Now after eating, theres definitely a difference when you marinade or rub meat with salt. The liquid tastes well seasoned, but the thickest part of the shank feels very under seasoned. Not a major disaster though, but have learned that caster sugar looks like salt to me.

I once made a Madeira cake with salt instead of caster sugar. You can imagine how edible that was.

My sister once made a cake for the oldies in her nursing home, except she mistook the t for a T, and added 2 tablespoons of bicarb. Yeah, not so tasty.
