Aye, there's the rub!

Free Spice Rub Recipe 

We're not sure if Shakespeare was thinking about

cooking when he wrote Hamlet, but we figure he would

have loved this spicy mix!


This rub is so versatile--great on vegetables, fish,

poultry and beef.  We love it on sliced and roasted potatoes.

Now that summer is here, try the rub on grilled or baked

fish such as cod, corvino, salmon or mahi mahi. Makes

your mouth water when added to grilled poultry or steaks.


The rub also makes a great gift. Tie a gift card on

the side of a recycyled or new glass container and place a

label on it. It’s always a good idea to include the ingredients

for the lucky recipient. This is a gift that will be very

appreciated and used.


Spice Rub:


1 teaspoon dried thyme             

1 teaspoon dried rosemary        

1½ teaspoon granulated garlic    

1½ teaspoon granulated onion   

1 teaspoon ground coriander

2 tablespoons paprika

1 tablespoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon ground red pepper

1 teaspoon black pepper


1. In a spice grinder or small food

processor, grind the thyme and rosemary.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.

2. Store in a closed jar. You can multiply this recipe as needed and increase or diminish the pepper according to taste.



ALLIUM FREE: Omit garlic and onion. Add 1 teaspoon dried basil.
