L'ekama Middle Eastern Chile Garlic Sauce

MADE BY NYSHUK IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

Like a Middle Eastern pantry in a jar, this spice paste in chile garlic oil is delicious rubbed on anything you plan to grill, from meat and poultry to bread and vegetables. It's also great in sauces, marinades and dressings, in soups and egg dishes and on sandwiches. –Tina Ujlaki, Executive Food Editor, Food & Wine Magazine


MOUTH SAYS...

Yes, this savory, spicy paste is so vibrant and full-flavored, it's good enough to eat with a spoon. 

All the best Middle Eastern spices come together in perfect proportion, swimming in a smooth, rich chile garlic oil: coriander, garlic and salt take the spotlight, supported by a bit of spice from paprika and aromatic cumin. 

Tip of the Tongue

Marinate all meat and drizzle all soups with L'ekama – trust us. Stir into chicken or turkey burgers before grilling (about 2 Tbsp. per pound of ground meat). Or, mix with chopped black olives to make a delicious sandwich spread.
