Signature Recipes from the Kitchens of Fuchs
These four easy, great-tasting recipes are just the beginning of what you can create when you start with our African Exploration seasonings as your foundation:
- Berbere BBQ Flank Steak
- Maghreb Style Boharat Chicken Wings
- Mozambique Style Piri Piri Shrimp
- Senegalese Style Tamarind & Coconut Cashews
- Apply 2 -3 Tbsp. Berbere BBQ Seasoning to each 1 pound of Flank Steak.
- Let sit overnight (or at least 2 hours) in refrigerator.
- Grill steaks over medium-high heat until desired doneness.
Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: Try this as a mouth-watering topical seasoning for snacks, such as popcorn and chips, too!
- Combine 1-2 Tbsp. Maghreb Style Boharat Seasoning with 1Tbsp. olive oil to make marinade.
- Apply to 1 pound of chicken wings; let sit overnight (or at least 2 hours) in refrigerator.
- Bake at 350°F for approximately 30-40 minutes, or until fully
Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: This seasoning also works wonderfully with vegetables such as turnips, sweet potatoes and cauliflower. Or, mix it in with rice or grains.
- Preheat a medium non-stick sauté pan over medium heat.
- Add 1 Tbsp. oil and 1 ½ pounds raw, cleaned shrimp.
- Cook for 2 minutes.
- Combine ½ cup Mozambique Style Piri Piri Sauce Base and ½ cup water, and pour over shrimp in sauté pan.
- Continue to heat for 4-5 minutes, or until fully cooked.
Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: You’ll want to try this seasoning on other seafood items such as mussels or cod – not to mention how well it works with chicken!
- Place ½ cup plain, unsalted cashews in a bowl.
- Spray evenly with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. Senegalese Style Tamarind & Coconut Snack Seasoning
Chef Elizabeth’s Tip: This seasoning also pairs well with the delicate flavors of fish such as cod or other white fish. Or, for a vegetarian option, try it with tofu.
