Uncovering the secrets of Caribbean Green Seasoning

The Caribbean, with its rich tapestry of cultures and cuisines, is renowned for its bold and flavourful dishes. At the heart of many Caribbean recipes lies a key ingredient: Green Seasoning. This versatile blend of herbs and spices is a staple in Caribbean kitchens, bringing a burst of freshness and complexity to a wide array of dishes.

What is Green Seasoning?

Green Seasoning is a fragrant mixture of fresh herbs, aromatics, and spices, finely blended into a vibrant green paste. While the exact ingredients may vary from recipe to recipe and island to island, common components include cilantro, scallions, thyme, garlic, ginger, and hot peppers. This verdant concoction not only adds depth of taste but also lends a bright, herbaceous aroma to dishes.

How to Use Green Seasoning:

Green Seasoning is incredibly versatile and can be used in numerous ways to enhance your culinary creations. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Marinades: Use Green Seasoning as a base for marinades to infuse meats, poultry, or seafood with Caribbean flair. Simply rub it onto your protein of choice, let it marinate for a few hours or overnight, and grill, roast, or pan-sear for a burst of flavour.

  2. Sauces and Dips: Blend Green Seasoning with yogurt, sour cream, or mayonnaise to create zesty sauces and dips perfect for accompanying snacks or adding a kick to sandwiches and wraps.

  3. Stews and Soups: Stir Green Seasoning into hearty stews, soups, or rice dishes to impart depth of flavour and a touch of brightness. It works wonders in traditional Caribbean dishes like curry goat, callaloo, or rice and peas.
