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.
