  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
  • 2 tbsp black peppercorns, crushed

Place all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend to make a smooth and very pungent paste (seriously, your neighbours will be asking what’s for dinner…)


Use the paste as a powerful and distinctive rub and seasoning for barbecued chicken, pork, or fish. It will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks if covered, and you and your mates won’t be able to get enough of it!
