Yes. Pepper fruit cured. I knew I wanted to use it for the way I thought the spicy seeds would cut the chewy fish and add aroma. My desire would be to cure white, local fish but this is a good place to begin.
And I’m glad to say it worked. Take some processed pepper fruit and combine it with sugar and salt which serve dual purposes of flavouring and preservation.
Fish works well. I’d love to try this with beef too, in a kilishi/ jerky style manner! I think peanuts and pepper fruit would make an awesome combo but that’s work for another day.
The rest really is easy – packaging the mix and combination and letting time do the necessary work of upgrading texture and flavour.
