Often referred to as the Yemeni parmesan, Z'hug (Yemeni Arabic: سَحاوِق — Sometimes spell it zhoug, skhug, s'chug, z'hoog, sahawiq) adds an unparalleled wonderful complexity of flavor to dinner centerpieces that will blow your mind. Adding Z'hug to a dish makes a big impact on its flavor.
In Yemen, the Middle East and North Africa, Z'hug is an essentially savory simple sauce, something like a cross between a pesto and a salsa verde, but hotter than either and with an intricate flavor profile. Z'hug’s versatility makes it more and more popular around the world, and not just in Middle Eastern restaurants and homes. It has recently become popular in the United States.
Our product is a dry recreation of the traditional sauce, featuring a meticulously crafted blend of a variety of premium authentic spices. It has many incredibly devoted fans!
❖ What Does Z'hug Taste Like?
Fragrant, intensely savory, spicy, subtle earthy notes, smokey, slightly citrus finish, with a great depth of flavor and bouquet, and enough heat to satisfy chile fans, but not so much that it overwhelms the other flavors and spices. The exotically delicious combination is sheer genius.
It's a regal spice that adds majesty to dishes, an excellent mystery blend that contributes a whole palette of flavors without dominating an end result. Everything is dialed in — the scent, the color, the texture, the flavor.
Warning: When you start to enjoy this spice blend, you practically get married...

Though it may seem like a strange time to celebrate venerable Z'hug when so many in Yemen are suffering, many from hunger, I would argue that there is no better time. For so many Yemenites, their signature Z'hug is a potent reminder of who they really are.

❖ How to Enjoy it
For a great fajita marinade, mix together 1 tablespoon Kickin' Cajun seasoning, 2/3 cup vegetable oil and 1/3 cup lime juice or vinegar. Let your chicken, pork, flank or round steak marinate in the fridge overnight, then toss it in a hot cast-iron skillet and cook quickly until done. Serve with bell pepper, onion slices, flour tortillas and sour cream and guacamole for a tasty, easy meal.
We’ve combined a link with the old world herbs & spices of Greek oregano, delicate thyme and cumin with the new world spices of Hungarian paprika, fragrant coriander, cayenne pepper, bold Tellicherry black pepper, dehydrated organic garlic powder, minced onion, and pristine Himalayan pink crystal sea salt (Gourmet food grade), resulting in a perfectly balanced blend-with-a-kick.
