Everything that came in my package from Spice Breeze for the month.
So what is all this stuff?
This month our package transports us to Japan and tells us a bit about the Art of Sumo.
The first spice kit that is included is Tsukune, a Japanese dish. This is a meatball dish that coats them with a sweet and salty sauce.
Our seasoning blend for this dish includes; Shichimi Togarashi which is a blend of toasted sesame seeds, hemp seeds, seaweed, orange peel, tangerine peel, ginger and Sichuan pepper.
Next we have Koshary, an Egyptian dish. This is the Egyptian national dish and is a great way to use up leftovers.
There are two spice packets included for this recipe. The first includes cumin, nutmeg, black pepper, coriander, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, paprika and chili. The second includes just black pepper and cumin.
Our box also includes a packet of Gomashio a Japanese tabletop condiment that is a blend of toasted sesame seeds and cherrywood smoked sea salt flakes.
The final spice kit for this month and the dish that I decided to create is Krauterbackhendl. This dish is Austrian chicken nuggets!
Our seasoning packet for this is a unique blend of onions, rosemary, savory, oregano, thyme, lemon verbena, tarragon, lime peel and nutmeg.
To begin making this dish I premade the dipping sauce. This is a blend of sour cream, pickle, chives, mustard, lemon juice and salt.
It ends up tasting a bit like tartar sauce!
Then we season our chicken with salt and pepper. I did not cut them into nuggets though – just butterflied the breasts.
Now I prepared the egg mixture for dredging by combining egg, mustard, the krauterbackhendle spices, lemon juice, salt and pepper and oil.
This smells pretty tasty!
Then you’ll set up a plate with flour, a plate with the egg mixture and a plate with bread crumbs and dip your chicken in each to coat. Then you’ll put the chicken into a pan with hot oil and cry about five minutes on each side.
This smells so good while it’s cooking!
It says not to crowd the pan so I made mine in batches.
And I was left with an absolutely delicious dinner!
So in summary
