Zest's range of Marinade Blends
Indian, Nepalese, Moroccan & Sri Lankan - $7.90 per jar
Today's 'cooking' product is the Moroccan Marinade from the specialty food company, Zest Byron Bay. The Moroccan Marinade is one of 4 blends that are produced by this husband and wife team from the village of Federal in the northern rivers region of northern NSW, Australia. Shelley and Pob Sellors took over Zest Byron Bay about 5 years ago and now their products are sold in about 250 food outlets around Australia.
Zest also makes 4 curry recipe bases - Butter Chicken, Rogan Josh, Vindaloo & Kerala. All their products are gluten, sugar and dairy free. Made by hand to ensure consistent quality. Great with meat and brilliant for vegetarians and vegans.
The lamb riblets we used were trimmed and smaller than pork or beef ribs. The Moroccan blend was easy to pour and mixed in well with the riblets. Enjoy our 'cooking' fotoblog.
The 4 Zest Byron Bay marinades
Lamb Riblets from Super Butcher Ashmore, Gold Coast
The trimmed lamb riblets are ideal for this dish
They are easy to marinate & the flavours absorb very well
10 riblets & 1 jar of the Zest Moroccan Blend
I added a little water, sesame & rice bran oil
Just makes mixing & marinating easier
Covered & left in fridge overnight
Take marinated riblets out of fridge for al least 30 mins before use
Heat heavy oven proof pan & brush with oil
Preheat my fan force oven to 220C
8mins at 220C & 160C for 12mins
The aroma during cooking was wonderful
Let riblets rest on paper towel for 5 mins
Can be eaten hot or warm - great with cold beer or a nice wine
The Zest Byron Bay Moroccan riblets look great, smell even better & taste 'not bad'
Will be trying Zest other marinades and curry bases soon
