CHISA

One of "Kumbites" sole creations, Chisa (a.k.a. SHOSHOLOZA) is a tangent off chilli meets hot sauce. I love peri peri sauce but not the gunk that comes with it commercially. Having been raised in Zimbabwe i grew up on this stuff. So i created a drippy blend with different fresh chillies and spice.

JERK MARINADE

A classic marinade straight out of the Caribbean, does not need much description but if you are going to have a bar-be cue (also great with other cooking methods, including stewing) this is ESSENTIAL. This particular recipe is jam packed full of flavour, to be used with all manor of protein, fish & vegetables. Marinade protein overnight ( about 2 hrs for fish) in the refrigerator for best results but personally it has to be no less than 48 hours, cook & ENJOY !

TIP: use 1-2 tbsp as a medium in which to cook mussels (as for Moules marinière) or shellfish in general. & why not do the same for stir fried vegetables.
