My Spice Blend

     Here is a simple yet flavorful spice blend I came up with recently.  It can be used in a variety of dishes. Most recently it was showcased in a baked shrimp dish and black bean soup.

4 spice blend

2 Tbsp coriander seed
2 Tbsp fennel seed
1 Tbsp smoked hot paprika
1 Tbsp cumin

Toast coriander and fennel seed in hot dry pan until fragrant and slightly golden.  Place in clean coffee grinder, grinding into a fine powder.  Place in bowl and mix in paprika and cumin.  Place in air tight container until ready to use.
