How to make a spice rub

A spice rub is a simple mixture of salt, herbs and spices. It is normally used to marinate meat or fish before cooking and is a good idea to do this in advance to impart the flavour fully. Once the food has been marinated, it is normally cooked using a ‘dry’ cooking method such as grilling or barbecuing.

There are many combinations of spices that work well with different meat and fish. Here is Geoffrey Smeddle’s spice rub for pot-roast lamb with chorizo and pearl barley.

1
Place all the herbs, spices, salt and zest in a pestle and mortar and grind until well crushed and incorporated
2
Use your hands to coat the meat or fish in the rub
3
Transfer to a plate and cover in cling film
4
Set aside in the fridge to marinade for a minimum of 1 hour or longer for a stronger flavour

Variations

Experiment with different combinations of spices and seasonings to create your own spice rubs.

Add olive oil to create a wetter marinade that sticks to the meat or fish more easily.
