Dish D’Lish Introduces our New Rain City Seasoning!

RainCitySeasoning 3
 

It’s no secret Seattleites are fond of their coffee! We love our brew any time of day and any form we can find it. With that in mind, Dish D’Lish took the passion (and sometimes necessity) for that daily dose of caffeine and developed a tasty new seasoning blend that focuses on those unmistakable and complex flavors.

Aptly named, Rain City Seasoning is the 3rd addition to our Dish D’Lish seasoning blend collection and we partnered with two Seattle favorites, Caffè Umbria Coffee Roasters and Theo Chocolate. Caffè Umbria’s delicious coffee is ground fresh for every batch of seasoning and Theo Chocolate’s cocoa nibs are of the highest quality, fair trade, and perfectly toasted. We then blend these together with 2 types of salt, dried orange peel, allspice, peppers, and other spices to deliver a versatile and d’lish seasoning!

Rain City Seasoning is perfect for chicken, rubbed on steak, salmon or pork loins, sprinkled on roasted root vegetables, squash or adding an extra bit of “wow” to a dark and delicious BBQ sauce. But the uses don’t end there! Cocktails can use this blend as a rim or spice ingredient for Bloody Marys or to add a savory take on a smoky margarita made with mescal.

Coffee not your thing? Try Our Other Seasonings:

French Seasoning Salt is a salty and savory seasoning that is the perfect all-purpose blend with 3 types of salt, garlic, onion, pepper, paprika, herbs, and spices. It really allows meats, seafood, poultry and vegetables to shine anytime.

The Cha Cha Chipotle Lime Seasoning is our slightly spicy and citrusy seasoning. We combine chipotle and dark chili powders, salt, lime, onion, garlic, and spices together to form a seasoning you will do the Cha Cha for! This seasoning is perfect for adding depth and flavor to poultry, meats, seafood, and veggies when grilling, roasting or sautéing.

Savory Roasted Squash

The rich coffee notes in the Rain City Seasoning bring out the sweetness of the squash. Snazz up this tasty side dish with a sprinkling of blue cheese, pomegranate seeds and toasted hazelnuts.

Makes about 6 servings.

1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. dry vermouth, white wine or apple juice
6 cups peeled 1 1/2-inch cubed winter squash, such as Hubbard, Butternut or Acorn
1 Tbsp. Dish D’Lish Rain City Seasoning

Preheat oven to 357⁰

In a large bowl whisk the oil, brown sugar and vermouth together. Then add the squash and stir to coat well. Sprinkle the squash with the Rain City Seasoning and then toss to coat.

Lay the squash out in a single layer on a sheet pan. Roast the squash for about 25 – 35 minutes until they are tender and the edges are caramelized.

Dish D’Lish Rain City Seasoning Chef’s Notes:

  • For an average size steak or salmon fillet use 1 tsp. per side
  • Rub 1 – 2 Tbsp. on a whole chicken before roasting.
  • Sprinkle on grilled pears or peaches, serve on goat cheese spread crostini for a quick and easy appetizer.
