Ras el Hanout Spice Mix

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by JustJanS

Ras el hanout is a North African Spice and it's name translates loosely to "House Blend". It can contain as many as 50 ingredients including rosebuds and Spanish fly. This is a simple mix I'm submitting here. I've been lucky to be given some, but I'll be posting recipes using it, so thought others might like this recipe.It's apparently good for poultry, rabbit, pork, seafood eggs, vegetables, soups, tagines, braises, sautes, roasts, pastas, risotto and cooked pulses, It can also be mixed with flour to dust or coat food!!!

Top Review by Latchy

I really like this spice mix, have given it a good go, made a Moraccan Chicken, recipe I have posted, also rubbed some on a piece of slamon, and it turned out great. I can see I will use this mixture quite a lot, even in my curries.
