On Saturday, this free range chicken made its way across to Oxford in a cool bag and was very kindly seasoned by Jen's Nan. This lady is amazing, she is 76, as sprightly as I don't know what and has wonderful stories to tell about cooking that would keep me on the edge of my seat and listening forever!
She packed me off home with a large jar of her lime seasoning and a small jar of hot pepper sauce and the chicken cut into portions and seasoned within an inch of its life. All I had to do was roast it in a medium oven...oh the smell as it was cooking was lovely...the taste was hot, spicy and full of flavour and melt in the mouth tender. Now I don't like it too hot, for some reason it takes the flavour away for me and I just get the heat, but this was just right.
I can't wait to try out the jars on other things....me and Paul were drooling over all the dishes we could make with this...prawns with the lime seasoning and coconut milk, salmon fishcakes seasoned with pepper sauce, to name but a few.
I haven't asked her if I can post the recipe and I'm not sure if she will let me, we were joking saying she should take a leaf out of the reggae reggae man's book and start bottling the stuff...so if you'd like some, email me and I'll pass your order on!!! ;-)
