Green seasoning is one of those herb mixtures that is unique to the Caribbean and differs slightly from island to island. It is used in a huge number of Trinidadian dishes. In Trinidad, it's distinguished by the use of a local herb called shado beni (culantro). Fresh shado beni can sometimes be found in West Indian markets, but if not, fresh cilantro is a good substitute.

  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh shado beni or cilantro leaves
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic
