For other seasoning ideas, look no farther than your kitchen cupboards. A few simple, carefully chosen herbs and spices can go a long way. Pastes made from store-bought pesto and sun-dried tomato lend a Mediterranean flavor to any cut, and coating your roast with smoked paprika stains the meat and helps create a darker, more distinct crust. A whole roasted fish looks and tastes wonderful when slit and stuffed with thinly sliced lemon, garlic, and herbs. When cooking lamb, try massaging it with crushed garlic and rosemary or a thick emulsion made with mashed anchovies and capers; for pork, try scoring the rind and rubbing it with sage leaves or a dry blend of crushed fennel seeds, star anise pods, cinnamon, cloves, and black peppercorn.
