You must remember sitting in a restaurant and listening to your waiter romance a dish by using words like “pesto” – or “aioli?” Well, you don’t need to be impressed by that any longer, now that you’ve learned to make our simple versions of those condiments right in your own kitchen. And now, you can impress your own guests, every time you use them. In this recipe, we have taken a page out of a North African recipe; but we’ve saved ourselves (and you) a lot of time by using our Casablanca Seasoning Blend as the star of the show. We think you’ll enjoy this as a dipping sauce for Tradewinds Sweet Potato Fries or Bacon Wrapped Scallops. Give it a try, and you’ll be hooked!

 

Place all ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk to combine and refrigerate for at least an hour before using. This will allow the ingredients to develop into a unique flavor all its own.

Seasoning

Adapted for Home Chefs

Hawaiian Alaea
Sea Salt
Harvested from Hawaii's
clay-lined salt ponds, this
salt is ideal for Home Chefs who want to distinguish themselves. It locks in the moisture and flavor of grilled and roasted meats; and its robust earthy and sweet flavors make it perfect for brines, rubs, marinades, and more.

Pink Peppercorns
While they have a fresh,
peppery flavor, pink
peppercorns are not
pepper. They are the fruit of a Brazilian tree that is part of the cashew/mango family. Their sweet, mild flavor works well in delicate sauces, as well as in seafood and poultry dishes. Crush with a mortar and pestle.
