Expert Tips

The spice rub is perfect for sprinkling on meat or fish before grilling or roasting.

The rub makes a great marinade, too. Simply apply the rub to meat, poultry or fish, place in a container or plastic bag, then coat with some olive oil. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes to marinate before cooking.
