RECIPES & TIPS
Green Szechuan peppercorns can be used similarly to red ones, but are more intensely flavorful. Try using them to season stir fry dishes or rubs for poultry, meats, and seafood.
Szechuan peppercorns are an important component in Chinese five spice powder (with star anise, cloves, cinnamon & fennel seed) & often paired with ginger and/or garlic. To awaken their full flavor, lightly toast them in a dry pan before grinding.
