Allspice Emporium offers delectable, aromatic international seasoning blends, popcorn seasonings, beverage blends, and pantry staples. My products are lovingly created with quality ingredients imported from around the world. Each seasoning blend is toasted in a seasoned cast-iron skillet, hand-ground, hand-blended and packaged to order. No MSG, fillers, or anti-caking agents. This collection of Portuguese Spiced Seasoning Blends embodies the bold, fiery flavors of Portugal: Portuguese Piri Piri - It combines Red Chiles, Sea Salt, Olive Oil Powder, Vinegar Powder, Lemon Juice Powder, and Garlic Powder. Try it as a rub on chicken, a dusting on shrimp, or use it anywhere you want a potent boost of flavor and heat. Brush olive oil on meat then sprinkle or rub on. Combine ⅓ cup of seasoning blend with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil, 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and a little water to form an authentic piri piri paste. Use this paste to add a flavor punch to anything you want, or prepare traditional Portuguese dishes. There are many variations of Piri Piri---Portugal, Brazil and Africa all have their interpretations. One thing they have in common is heat---and lots of it! The Portuguese version is a reflection of Portugal's seafaring history as well as its close proximity to Spain. Tempero da Essência - It combines Ground Red Chilies, Lime Salt, Garlic, Black Pepper, Onion, Oregano, Thyme, and Cumin. It is primarily used to flavor meat and seafood dishes, but is versatile enough to complement vegetable and side dishes as well.
