This is Australia’s answer to rosemary for lamb. Mintbush marinade is moreish, delicious and while the tastes are different there’s a similarity to the aromatics which really suits comfort food or rich gourmet dishes. Try some Mintbush marinade mixed in with our Rainforest lime confit adding a little white wine vinegar to cut the sweetness and serve with lamb shanks.
Mintbush marinade is also the ultimate marinating mix to transform fetta, boconccini, labni and other cheeses which improve in oil from pedestrian to sensational. It can be used over any soft ripened cheese too.
Mintbush marinade is another Australian herb mix which enhances tomatoes and is really good with Mediterranean inspired dishes.
Try segments of bell peppers (capsicums) with chunky slices of tomato, crushed garlic pieces and macadamia, cottonseed or olive oil drizzled over. Roast until the tomatoes are soft and the peppers are just charred, remove from the oven and sprinkle generously with Mintbush Marinade. Serve with some Alpine pepper bread and your favourite chilled white wine.
