Hawaij/All-Purpose Seasoning

Hawaij/All-Purpose Seasoning

Erich Schlismann

"This is inspired by a recipe for traditional Hawaij. A great and simple blend of spices that has become one of our favorite general seasonings. I use this as a rub for chicken a lot, but it is also a great seasoning for rice, fish, pork, even shrimp and mixed veggies."

  • Cook's Note:
  • Salt can be omitted. The ground sumac really adds an additional layer of flavor to this mix. Cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes can easily be added if a little heat is desired.
