Andaliman Pepper, originating from Indonesia, belongs to the category of “cousin peppers”. It is a wild berry that belongs to the climbing plants named Zanthoxylums. Like most of these berries, this pepper does not sting but gives off a fresh scent in the mouth, reminiscent of citron, lemongrass and notes of jasmine.
This berry goes particularly well with seafood such as white-fleshed fish, but also with fruits, especially exotic fruits such as mango or pineapple. Today we offer you an amazing combination of scallops.
