Black RoseBlack Rose or “Roisin Dubh”, as it is said in Ireland, is our High Seas Irish Pirate blend with a unique mix of hickory smoked kosher salt, raw cane sugar, yellow mustard, horseradish, smoked black peppercorns, Worcestershire, tamarind and leeks. Developed as a prime rib rub, it is amazing on steaks, pork ribs, tuna and salmon. It also gives tuna and potato salads a great little zip.
Bordeaux MountainThis unique gourmet blend is named after the mountain on St. John in the USVI. Porcini mushrooms, fennel, hickory smoked salt, rosemary and a touch of Aleppo pepper flake (from the Syrian Highlands) are carefully crafted together, creating smoky flavors of earth and pine wood. Lemon and orange zests dance along in the foreground as wonderful counterbalances. Mixed with olive oil, it is great as a marinade for meat or mixed with lemon juice and Dijon mustard as a vinaigrette. This blend is great with sautéed mushrooms, smoked salmon, goat cheese, pork and duck.
Condado AdoboThis adobo is based on the classic adobos of the Spanish Caribbean. It is a unique blend of roasted garlic, cumin and coriander, as well as Mediterranean and New World oregano. Because of the intensely fresh turmeric (Alleppey), you'll find it gives a golden aromatic finish to grilled fish, chicken and vegetables. It's also great with all things avocado.
