This one works well as a quick evening dinner. Marinade the chicken with jaggery, light soy sauce, tomato sauce, vinegar, freshly brewed coffee and lemon juice. Grill the chicken and garnish with coriander. Serve it with a healthy green salad or steamed rice.
Unlikely pairing isn’t it? But for fish lovers, this interesting pairing works well. Other fishes worth trying are trouts, mackerels or halibut. Coat the salmon (or any other fish of your choice) with finely ground coffee, black pepper, oregano, salt and curry powder. Cook it directly on the grill. Serve it with fruit salsa or a green salad.
This party favourite delectable dish can be made for birthdays and anniversaries. The smell of the darkly roasted ground coffee infused with spices and stuffed in lamb shanks imparts a unique flavour. The balance of bitter, spicy and savoury notes in this rub works wonderfully with the lamb. Serve it on a bed of couscous and yoghurt.
Ever cooked chicken wings with coffee? Coffee gives chicken wings a smoky and earthy flavour. The smokiness of the paprika, the heat of the cayenne and the raw texture of the coffee grounds create an exciting flavour in your mouth. Cook the wings until they are nicely browned and juicy. After you are through, serve on a platter and just dig in.
