Fennel & Nigella Seed 'Umami' Rub

With the addition of Taste No5 Umami Paste, this fresh, tasty rub is delicious with pork. Combine the ingredients and thoroughly massage over the meat before slamming it into a moderate oven (180C) for about an hour or until the juices run clear. Do allow it to rest for about 10 minutes before serving, producing wonderfully succulent roast pork.
