Kawakawa Roast Chicken

One of my favorite dishes (which I can't get now being in the UK!) is dried Kawakawa sprinkled over a roast chicken (lamb works as well).

The taste explosion is ridiculous.

No one seems to use native herbs in NZ cooking - which is such as waste.

Its so easy as Kawakawa grows like a weed - anywhere from Wellington to Auckland!

Just pick a shopping bag full a leaves and then dry. Then use as a herb.

For some reason using the herb as a seasoning for roasts - brings out an incredible flavor.

Make sure - its is just a dusting though!

If you don't like it - I'll buy you another chicken!
