A house rub is a spice blend that tastes great on just about anything and everything. Mine is fantastic, and I am constantly making it all the time, and using it on everything including chicken, shrimp, scallops, salmon, fajita beef, and wings. Seriously, it tastes good on everything and my friends love it too.
For my internship while I was in Culinary School, I worked at a fine dining Southwestern restaurant in Atlanta, and they used a rub similar to this one for almost everything. I say almost like this one because it was a little more involved. All of the spices we used at the restaurant came in whole, and we toasted and ground them ourselves. Also, we didn’t use a pre-made chili powder, but we ground up dried whole chili peppers and used our own blend. This was a long process that would take over an hour to make a humongous batch of the house rub, and while it was delicious, I don’t always do those extra steps at home.
Even though I use pre-ground spices, I try to always use organic spices whenever possible, and simply making the rub myself makes for a fresher spice blend. I almost always prefer this rub to any store bought rub.
This rub is delicious on anything from roasted chicken, salmon, shrimp, steaks, pork chops, and as a seasoning for sweet potato fries! I suggest making as big a batch as you can!
