Asian 5 Spice Seasoning Mix Recipe Asian 5 Spice Seasoning Recipe

Asian 5-spice is a blend of five spices (of course) and often salt. It is great for seasoning fatty cuts of meat like pork or duck but is also great on seafood.

The core five spices that are usually used are Anise, Black Pepper, Fennel, Cinnamon and Cloves, though sometimes turmeric and citrus.

I often use this spice on stir frys and roasted meats or vegetables and I especially like it with fresh orange juice, lemon juice and honey. (Not sure if this a traditional use, but it is delicious).
