Savor the flavors of everyday real food, fresh from the garden or stored on your pantry shelves.
This spice blend can be used to impart Thai flavor to meat and seafood, or veggies or grains. You can also use it as a dry rub. To make an easy Thai marinade, toss a generous scoop of this seasoning mixture into creamy coconut milk.
1/2 tbsp dried cumin
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp freshly ground white pepper
1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp ground dried hot Thai chilies, or to taste
2 tbsp dried lemongrass
2 tbsp dried lime zest
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp dried ginger
2 tbsp dried mint
2 tbsp toasted unsweetened coconut, ground
Combine all ingredients with a mortar and pestle or a food processor. Store in an airtight jar. (The little spice jars with rubber gasket seals keep herbs fresh longer than jars with screw-on tops.)
