What’s summer without a BBQ? We can’t wait to see BoTree, our official seasoning supplier at the Show this June.
Loved by chefs and experts around the world, BoTree’s Kampot Pepper is unlike your typical pepper. It’s hotter, richer, more floral and complex than any other pepper. And their Fleur de Sel is ‘la crème de la crème’ (literally!) of salts.
Experts in finding the best pepper pairing for barbecuing and summer dishes, BoTree gave us their top seasoning tips:
1. A meaty steak pairs beautifully with the robustness of Black Kampot pepper. For pork or lamb, use Red Kampot pepper. It is best to slow-roast pork and lamb on the barbecue, so flavours infuse and the meat becomes really tender.
2. For fish, either grilled or steamed, which on the barbecue both use Red Kampot pepper. For steamed salmon, we like to make a marinade with lime juice, minced ginger, Red pepper and onions. Squeeze lime all over, wrap it with foil to create a bag, and put that on the barbeque.
3. For a lovely salad, try this delicious French dressing recipe: olive oil, Dijon, a little white wine vinegar, ground Red Kampot pepper, Fleur de Sel, and a little brown sugar. Shake to mix.
BoTree is a single-source, organic seasoning company whose Kampot pepper has won BBC Good Food and Great Taste awards. Co-owned by brothers-in-law Christopher Gow (in Cambodia), and Peter Schaebbicke (in Scotland), BoTree started to not only produce exquisite pepper but also support Cambodia’s reinvestment in its finest produce. “We are honoured to contribute to Kampot pepper’s legacy,” said Peter, “through sustainability, ethical labour, and partnering locally on education efforts.”
