Do you have a duck recipe that feels like it's lacking flavor? This ba jiao fen, aka anise seed powder, is the perfect seasoning! Anise seeds offer a complex licorice taste that is bitter and sweet at the same time. This spice is a great choice with fattier proteins like duck, pork, and goose as it helps to enhance the taste of the meat. Use anise seed powder with Taiwanese beef noodle soup or tea eggs, a traditional snack in China.
