While browsing for dried coriander leaves on the spice isle at the supermarket, I came across a new brand of spices; Zest foods, which had a very attractive and modern looking twist to it. One particular mix of spice which attracted my attention was one which said 'FIRE EATER' , the first thing that ran through my mind was; OoOoo that's pinky and amrit! haha...I brought the little adorable tin home out of curiosity.
I used it today in my Moroccan-ish roast chicken served with gourmet salad dressed in balsamic vinegar, buttered corn on cobs and baked crisp triangles flavoured with onions, garlic, cajun and philly.
The level of 'spicy-ness' was disappointing! (my housemates and I eat pretty spicy stuff) But the mixture was a really good combination of spices. The chicken tasted great with the spice rub, although I would say it's false advertising with the label on top saying 'fire-eater'. Didn't regret the purchase though. It's definitely something useful to have in the pantry to add a little 'zing' to food with bland flavours. Us Malaysians love our 'zing' *wink wink* haha.
