BRIGHT. FRUITY.  SWEET SUN-DRIED TOMATO.
MELLOW HEAT.
ALEPPO PEPPER MAGIC.

This exquisite blend is inspired by Istanbul's vibrant spice markets and Turkey's ancient and versatile cuisine, which goes back as far as the 13th century. Turkish cooking was all about 'fusion' and influenced by China, Persia, India, Arabia, Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. 

This is a versatile blend that will add unique Mediterranean flavours and enliven vegetables, grains, meat, poultry, seafood or fish. You'll love Ottoman on pretty much anything. Your tastebuds will thank you.

Flavours

Warm and a bit spicy with mellow heat and sun-dried tomato notes thanks to a base of Aleppo pepper, a mild chilli that grows in Syria and Turkey. Grassy oregano, tart sumac, a hint of fragrant coriander and earthy cumin make this a bold and bright spice blend. Rose petals, a staple mediterranean addition, give it mild floral undertones and a fabulous aroma.

This blend is SALT FREE so you may wish to add sea salt to taste.

Great with

  • Use as a rub for roasted or barbecued lamb cutlets, roasted chicken, beef stews and grilled fish.
  • Marinate chicken breast with a few tablespoons of Ottoman, some olive oil and crushed garlic, then sear over medium heat.
  • Add a lovely kick to seafood, vegetable soups, hearty stews & roasted vegetables. Try on green beans, broccolini or sweet potato wedges with a drizzle of olive oil before sliding into the oven.
  • Scatter over fried or scrambled eggs or toss into shakshouka for oodles of flavour.
