There are certain things I always keep stocked that allow me to create dinner in a hurry. I like being able to have spices that pack a maximum amount of flavor. One of my favorites that I use almost daily is Outside Table Friday Fennel.
I love all of Outside Table’s spices and sauces. Their certified organic artisanal products are crafted in small batches. Friday Fennel combines organic fennel, organic onions and garlic, organic sugar, and sea salt for a lightly sweet and savory seasoning that perfectly accents both pork, and the sweet peach salsa.
I love grilling the pork chops because not only does the high heat get the chops on the table sooner, but that kiss of char adds a layer of smoky flavor.
The fresh peach salsa celebrates the bounty of summer peaches. Earthy poblanos are combined along with the bright pop of grapefruit juice. More Friday Fennel is added for that accent of anise flavor.
