I just finished making up a batch of my Moroccan spice mix. If you have ever worked with Moroccan spices they have a savory, sweet, and yet spicy flavor that is unique to spice mixes from that part of the world.

I use it to flavor lamb, beef, pork, chicken, fish, and veggies. If you’re looking for something a bit different, check this out.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

Add the coriander and cumin seeds, and toss until fragrant and beginning to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
