The red soil of Hormuz, as locals call it, is used as a very tasty spice. It is also used in making a tasty sauce that is used in cooking fish and shrimp. In addition, there is a food called “Hole” in this sauce, which we recommend eating in our guide to Hormuz. Locals put the fish with the orange peel and the sauce on one side for 6 months in the sun.
