May's Peruvian Inspired Spice Blends:
Peruvian Spice Blend
This ancho chili and smoky paprika rub is used to create a juicy, smoky Peruvian chicken, roasted in a perfectly blended marinade of olive oil, lime juice, garlic and our freshly ground spices. This smoky, spicy blend pairs well with sausages, shrimp, chicken, tofu or hearty vegetables such as eggplant.
Aji Amarillo Spices
The bright orange, full-bodied aji amarillo chile is the star of this spice blend. This chile offers a lot of fruitiness given its heat level. We've blended this freshly ground, dried chile with coriander, basil, mustard seed and other spices- which makes for a great coating for roasted sweet potato wedges. This blend is also perfect for cooking rice.
Pink Peppercorn Blend
Originating in Peru, these pink peppercorns have a peppery bite with a sweet, fruity flavor and had a heavy influence on Peruvian cuisine. We've included pink Himalayan sea salt to this blend, which pairs perfectly when sprinkled lightly on sweet dishes like ice cream, melons or chocolate or light, savory dishes such as scallops or salmon.
These spices sound great! I'm planning on making the chicken and potato recipes. RawSpiceBar makes it very convenient and affordable to add some unique flavours to your dishes and I like that they include recipes for the spices. I'm already thinking of other dishes I want to try with them. Also good to know is that spice blends contain only the spices listed on each blend with no added fillers such as MSG, salt, rice, sugar or flour. Spice blends are also free of contaminants such as dust and pests that can occur in pre-ground spices.
