Asian five 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. It is a staple in my kitchen. I make a large batch so I always have some on hand.

The core five spices that are usually used are anise, black pepper, fennel, cinnamon, and cloves, though sometimes turmeric and citrus peel are added too.

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

Some other great ways to use this spice blend:
