Pacific Northwest fish and seafood dry rub
Sweet and full-flavoured with a hint of smoke and dill—this is a Pacific Northwest classic. An excellent rub for fish and seafood. Make double, so you don’t run out. Makes ½ cup.
- 1 tbsp coriander seeds
- 1 tbsp fennel seeds
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
- 2 tbsp cane or brown sugar
- 2 tsp kosher salt (or 1 tsp smoked sea salt)
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 tsp dried dill
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- Dry-toast coriander and fennel seeds in medium saucepan over medium heat, occasionally stirring, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Cool slightly. Tip mixture into a blender or spice grinder with thyme; coarsely grind.
- Place in a glass jar and stir in remaining ingredients. Store in a cool dark place for up to 1 month.
Use on: Salmon, halibut, tuna, shrimp, scallops (try plank-grilling them), tofu steaks, broccoli, mushrooms, or eggplant.
