Pink peppercorn recipes

Pink peppercorn

Pink peppercorns are technically not really peppercorns at all - they come from a different plant - but don’t let that stop you adding a rosy hue and peppery touch to your supper.

Buyer's guide

Dried pink peppercorns can be found in some supermarkets and delicattessens. You can also buy them in brine.


They have a delicate pepper flavour; just crush them in a pestle and mortar to get that peppery aroma going. Use them combined with white, black or green peppercorns as a seasoning for steak or fish, mixed into a salad dressing or even added to minced meat as a filling for burgers.
