Spice Rub For Salmon

I have been using this spice rub for years.

This Spice Rub is good on many other foods as well! You could use it on other types of fish, vegetables & even chicken. You could give it try on anything! Always use a bit of oil on the food after using the spice rub!

The recipe came on the paper that some grilling planks were in. There were 6 planks, cedar, alder and maple. We have long since used those but I kept the wrapper for this recipe. I do not change a thing in this spice rub since it is great the way it is! The recipe is called COASTAL CUISINE DRY RUB.

The recipe makes quite a bit of seasoning so I put it in a labeled container to keep for future use! I always like to have it in my spice drawer so I am ready to use it on anything!

Here it is!


2 tbsp kosher salt

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp ground black pepper

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 tbsp basil, dried

1 tbsp paprika


Mix all of the ingredients together and then season whatever you like with it. I sprinkle it generously on salmon then BBQ the fish or pop it in the oven, You can brush a bit of oil on the fish after you have seasoned it to give it a beautiful crispy top! This seasoning is also good on fish if you want to pan sear it as well.

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
