The American spice blend is a composition from Louisiana, USA. This ready-to-use preparation is ideal for those who love spicy recipes.
You may be familiar with the use of American spices to season barbecued meats. It is true that red meat and poultry are then tastier and their taste is incomparable. It is also possible to use this spice blend to season your sauces, fish and vegetables.
I've designed this blend to appeal to all palates, without too much spice. So you can consume this spice blend in complete peace of mind if you don't want a too full-bodied taste. If you wish, don't hesitate to add an extra dose of chilli if you are an aficionado of very hot dishes.
For this American blend, I use ingredients from the basic recipe of the people of Louisiana. It's a subtle dosage and balance of garlic, salt, mustard, paprika, thyme, oregano, onions, pepper, cumin and hot pepper.
David Vanille's choice: I adapted the original recipe while keeping the basic spices to find a perfect harmony of flavours.
Pepper is the fruit of the pepper plant, a creeper found all around the globe. Black, white or green, pepper is used in the cuisine of cultures from all five continents. Pepper brings a hint of spiciness and reveals the taste of the foods with which it is associated.
The strength of the chilli pepper can be measured using the Scoville scale. Peppers and paprika are very mild grade 0 peppers, which means they don't sting at all.
Depending on the regions of the world and different palates, everyone can choose the chilli pepper that suits their taste. Chillies have long competed with pepper, but their scents and flavours are complementary. This is why they are inseparable from the American blend I am creating for you.
The American mixture appeared in the hands of French settlers who were driven out of Nova Scotia in the 18th century. When they arrived in the swampy bayou lands of Louisiana, they had to adapt to a new way of eating. In their exile, they took with them some basic foodstuffs (aromatic herbs, spices ...) and their culinary tradition from France.
The Acadians were creative in combining the flavours they mastered perfectly. It is with the alliance of their French culinary art and the addition of new spices that they were able to prepare spicy marinades to bring more taste. This is how onion, garlic, thyme, oregano and mustard met paprika, cumin, pepper and hot pepper for tasty dishes with a unique flavour.
Depending on the times, families and desires, recipes for American spices have balanced each other slightly differently over time.
In addition to spicing up your dishes, the American blend adds colour to your dishes. The presence of different herbs and spices brings a palette of colours to your plate. It is the pleasure of taste and eyes in a single blend.
The beneficial properties of spices are as follows:
This blend knows how to adapt to a beautiful variety of different flavors, so that you can discover new ones. Sprinkle some of this blend into your everyday cooking, whatever the circumstances! It will go equally well with meat, poultry, fish and shellfish as with vegetables.
Use it for all types of cooking: on the barbecue in grills, in the oven, steamed, in sauces, in soups, on skewers, in simmered dishes, in terrine, in stews... All the flavours of Louisiana in the plates of your family and your guests for a superb taste memory!
A little extra tip: if you still fear that the slight spiciness of this mixture will make your palate shiver, I invite you to add it at the very beginning of the cooking process. Conversely, if you are fond of this little hot tip, you can sprinkle it on at the end of cooking.
And for thrill seekers: don't hesitate to add a little of this mixture to your salads and other raw vegetables.
Do you want to discover all the flavours so typical of traditional American cuisine? Here are a few ideas on how to make the best use of my American spice blend.
The American spice blend will spice up the fresh vegetables in your appetizer. Sprinkle it simply and according to your taste on tomatoes, avocados, green beans, kidney beans, grated carrots, red cabbage... You can also use it to season your vinaigrette directly.
American spices bring out the flavour of chicken to perfection. For a tender and tasty meat, prepare a marinade with sunflower oil and the American mixture. Soak the chicken pieces on all sides and leave them to rest overnight in a hermetically sealed jar in the refrigerator. Arrange in a dish and cook in the oven without forgetting to turn on the grill mode at the end of cooking for more crispness.
Bonus: Don't hesitate to use the spice mix to season your savoury pies made with meat, salmon or sweet potatoes. It enhances the taste in an original way that really makes a difference.
The American spice blend can be stored in a cool, dry place, away from light for longer storage. You can also use an airtight glass jar if you wish to use it as a decorative element in your kitchen.
