WHAT HERBS GO WELL WITH…??

 

 


 

Here is another blog on herbs that go well with MEATS AND FISH.    You will note that many of the same herbs can be used on CHICKEN, TURKEY AND FISH.   Generally, you can mix together ½ to equal amounts of most herbs.

 

If you don’t have ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, ect,  use PUMPKIN PIE SPICE.  It has every one of those spices.

If you don’t have ground coriander, ground cumin; ground cardamom; ground ginger; ground turmeric and you need most of these, see if you have a curry mix spice. It again, has every one of those.

 Also, if you don't have dry  or powdered mustard, it is no sin to use the prepared stuff out of the jar.

 

POULTRY SEASONING    ( you can also just use ITALIAN SEASONING, if you don’t have the other ingredients or don’t want to bother mixing them)

A good easy recipe:

2 tbls marjoram

2 tbls savory

1  1/2 tbls Italian seasoning

1 1/2 teas thyme

should make 1/3 cup

Use POULTRY SEASONING FOR CHICKEN, DUCK , TURKEY,  LAMB SHOULDER ,AND BREAST OF VEAL.

 

 

 INDIAN SPICE RUB FOR POULTRY                  (you can also just use                                 curry powder, if you don’t have the   other ingredients)              

 

3 tbls curry powder

3 tbls chili powder

1 1/2 tbls ground allspice

1 1/2 tea ground cinnamon

a single recipe will coat a turkey,

two chickens, two ducks, four Cornish hens, turkey

Store away fr heat and light.  Will keep    for several weeks.

 

RECIPE FOR  INDIAN SPICE RUB FOR TURKEY         (CAN also be used for two    chickens, two ducks, 4 Cornish Hens)                

 

using the recipe for INDIAN SPICE RUB,  rub with your fingers all over the  meat and then refrigerate for 4-6 hours     or longer. Then place on the grill.                                                        

 

Generally speaking, you can use recipes for rubs and those for grilling interchangeably for : grilling, baking and broiling.   Rubs can be used as a marinade or just to rub onto the meat just before grilling or baking.

 

HERB RUBS FOR CHICKEN , LAMB and SEAFOOD :             equal amounts( say 3 tbls of each)  of: tarragon,  oregano ,dill weed, thyme ,rosemary, dry mustard and kosher salt.  Add (2 tbls) of lemon pepper mix pepper w/ lemon zest, and 1 tbls garlic

ground cardamom ,  ground ginger,  cracked black pepper, ground turmeric,  ground cumin, ground coriander, ground allspice, ground cloves

Or how about: lemon zest  , and/ or lemon pepper mix, garlic,  parsley, oregano,  marjoram,   rosemary,  mint,  tarragon

For a lemon flavor:    lemon  peel ,  lemon thyme,  lemon verbena,   lemon grass

 

 

FOR BARCECUE SPICE  ON:   RIBS, CHICKEN, BRISKET AND FISH

( INCLUDING FISH FILLET AND STEAKS), DELICIOUS ON SHRIMP

A GOOD HOT, SPICY MARINADE FOR CHICKEN WINGS  or  SPARE RIBS

chipotle pepper,  orange peel,    Mexican oregano,   ground cumin seed,  black peppercorns

 

For a nice  YUCATECAN MARINADE…This marinade will work with chicken breasts, fish such as tuna, swordfish and grouper, or shrimp. It also can act as a base for seviche made with shrimp, bay scallops, or any firm-flesh fish  USE  this for CHICKEN FAJITAS  or  SMOKED TURKEY BREASTS

orange peel ,   lime peel ,    lemon peel ,   chipotle ,  jalapeno pepper,  Mexican oregano ,  garlic,  mix or black peppercorns

ASIAN MARINADE :  chicken   breasts (3-4 hrs); beef  & pork tenderloin (6-8 hrs);    kabobs (6-8 hrs); flank steak    (overnight).         Marnated   Flank steak   sandwich

For those of you that are artistic, this would make a beautiful gift for someone who likes to cook and bake, or is new at cooking and baking. I had a friend who copied something like this by hand in calligraphy, on a long sheet of paper, dyed the paper some pretty color and made colored scroll work all around the edges, and made a small frame all around and made it so that it could be hung on the wall. She also said a few words of friendship and put her name on the bottom and DATED it. It was a very personalized gift. See what you can do!!
