It’s the perfect way to impart the genuine taste of traditional island flavour into your food. You will also notice I list “green seasoning” in many of my recipes – so whenever you see that, you’ll know exactly what I mean! So without hesitation, let’s get into it!

Notes & Recipe Tips

What is it? – Green seasoning is a versatile puree or chunky blend of fresh herbs and vegetables such as parsley, basil, thyme, green bell peppers, celery, onion, garlic, etc. It is often used throughout the Caribbean islands and in certain parts of Africa to primarily marinate meats, chicken and fish. It’s totally customizable and versatile so you can pretty much blend how you like and use how you like!

Storage – I recommend storing in an airtight glass jar, in the coldest part of your fridge (usually on the bottom shelf, towards the rear of fridge), to keep fresh. You can also freeze approx. a tbsp of green seasoning in each slot of an ice cube tray. Once frozen, remove from tray and keep frozen in an Ziploc bag.
