Bold Spice Rub

Bold Spice Rub

A delicious, bold dry rub for fish, seafood, or chicken. From Alder-Planked Fluke to Beer Can Chicken to sheet pan suppers, use it on the grill or in the oven. It makes enough for a large fish filet, a small chicken, or a sheet pan supper for two to four people. The flavors are fresher than store-bought rubs because you make only what you need.

*pinch ground mustard

*pinch cayenne

*smidgen cardamom
