Istanbul Spice Market

nagodog Jun 18, 2009 12:20 AM

I was in Istanbul recently and bought on a whim what I think are spice mixes called "chicken spice," "fish spice" and "meat spice" from the Spice Market. Does anyone know what spices are in these mixes and/or have any suggestions on how to use them? Thanks.

    I don't know exactly what is in each one, but arabic food has the same sort of thing. You just use it as a rub/marinade. Use a good amount of it all over a chicken for example and then grill or bake.

    Maybe add some fresh garlic with the spice and rub on fish, then squeeze lemon juice.

      They're about the same as you can buy on your grocer's shelf, and you use them the same way . . . I'm recalling. They're product sdisplayed for tourists visiting the market.
