I have created some good spice blends, and some not so good spice blends. And then I’ve created some great spice blends. This one falls into that next, rare level up, The Excellent!
Hence the name of this spice blend. I created it for a recent recipe to be used on some orange roughy fillets I grilled. Man-oh-man, did it turn out delicious. It was a big hit with the dinner guests! One of those flavors that make you stop and say; Mmmmmm, mmmm, as soon as you taste it!
Give it a try. I would love to hear back from you.
NOTE: This will make enough for about 1 lb. to 2 lbs. of fish fillets. You may want to mix this in larger portions. This should keep just fine in a sealed shaker, just as your other spices do.
Excellent Caribbean Style Spice Rub
- ½ cup onion powder
- ½ cup ground cinnamon
- ½ cup salt
- ¼ cup garlic powder
- ¼ cup ground ginger
- ¼ cup black pepper
- Mix all of the spice blend ingredients together in a spice shaker container.
- NOTE: This recipe assumes you want a good amount mixed, so you have some left over. If you want to cut it down for one use, just change cup to teaspoon or tablespoon, leaving the ratio the same.
