Hey everybody! I’m super excited to introduce you all to this week’s Feature Friday!! In case you forgot, Feature Friday is where I tell you all about a new restaurant, ingredient, accessory, blog, etc. that has caught my eye. I love to cook, I love to eat, and I love to share everything I’ve learned with anybody who will listen. Pretty much if I think it is awesome, I want you to know about it! Some of these posts may be sponsored (this one isn’t), but I would never put my name behind any person or product if I didn’t think it was worth your time and attention.
It’s time to meet my feature! I’ve recently fallen in love with Caribeque seasonings and rubs. I bought myself a three pack (shown above) and have used them at least 4 or 5 times a week since they arrived. They are all a little bit different and all pretty freaking awesome. I use the Island Thyme on grilled chicken breasts and the Calypso or Spicy Calypso (depending on my mood) mixed into ground pork to make breakfast sausage scrambles.
I actually had the chance to talk to the creator or Caribeque on the phone a few weeks ago, and this is just one solid dude with a serious love of food and BBQ. We had a great chat about seasoning, spices, grills, and our growing businesses. I’ve told you guys before, I won’t recommend a product if I don’t love it, and I sincerely love these seasonings. Here’s a little snippet from the website:
“The entire Caribeque line is gluten and MSG free, low sodium, and has less than 1 gram of sugar per serving. We do not add any anti-caking agents to our product, so they are 100% natural spices that will liven up every meal.”
I also just found out they are working on a couple of new blends that are paleo friendly. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new flavors!! If you are interested in ordering check out caribeque.com. They are also pretty active on instagram.com/caribeque.
If you get your hands on some, I’ve worked up a simple recipe for these Island Pineapple Chicken Kebabs that are pretty out of this world. Just cube 2 chicken breasts, 1 red onion, 2 bell peppers, and about half of a fresh pineapple. Arrange onto skewers, season with Caribeque Spicy Calyspo and grill on high heat until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165 degrees and serve with rice. Happy dinner, people!
