This is a hot spice mix and very healthy too since it doesn't contain much oil. I find it's enough to do about 6 lamb chops, but you could also use it on beef, pork or chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss the meat in the juice from the lemon and set aside in a non-metallic dish for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the spices and salt.
  3. Sprinkle each side of the meat with the spice mix.
  4. Rub it into the meat and marinate in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
  5. Smear the meat with a little olive oil just before cooking, then throw it on the BBQ or in a frying pan.

I used on the BBQ and this was sooooo good. i only had time to marinate for about 90 minutes but it still made the chicken really moist with lots of flavour. i used corriander instead of cumin as i had ran out and put in a little extra garlic as i love it. The chicken went down a treat with my lot. We'll definately use this again!!! Thanks!

We used chicken breast and DH grilled outside. This was a very nice spice mix, everyone enjoyed the chicken! I did season mine a little lighter as I am "chicken" when it comes to hotter tasting seasonings and it was still very tasty.
