Procedure

The term "marinade" could mean different things, but they all have one thing in common: they mean giving meat that special something. You can make a simple marinade with lemon juice, like anchovies in Liguria or South American “chevices”. You can marinade meat by soaking it in wine and herbs, such as with game for example. We also use the term marinade when we sprinkle oil, salt and herbs over the meat. When cooking, grilled meats tend to lose too much moisture and then get a little dry, stringy. To counter this and to get the maximum results from the grill, it is useful to marinate the Galletto before baking, sprinkle it with salt (7-8 grams per Galletto) and leave it in the fridge for 12-24 hours. Besides salt, flavors such as rosemary, coriander, thyme, and so on can also be added. To give it a spicy taste, a little chili goes a long way. There are already mixed salts with herbs on sale.
