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.

How to Make Moroccan Spice Mix

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Chef’s Note: This recipe will make about 3 tablespoons of spice.
  3. Chef’s Note: You will notice that this recipe calls for less ingredients than most recipes for Moroccan spice, but after playing around with it for a couple of years, I find it works for me.
  4. Place a small saucepan over medium heat.
  5. Add the coriander and cumin seeds, and toss until fragrant and beginning to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Chef’s Note: Adding spices to a hot pan (called blooming) is a great way to bring out additional flavor notes in many spices.
  7. Allow the coriander and cumin seeds to cool, about 10 minutes.
  8. Place the seeds and the red-pepper flakes into a spice grinder, and process until they are ground into a powder.
  9. Add to a bowl, and then mix in all the other spices.
  10. Place into an airtight container until needed. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
