These are basic ingredients that may be doubled or tripled and stored in airtight containers. The following recipe is for a hefty steak:
Blend 1 tsp kosher salt, 2 tsp (smoked) paprika, 2 tsp dried oregano, 1 and 1/2 tsp each of dried minced onion and garlic, 1/2 tsp ground cumin and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes.
Rub on either side of the steak and grill as desired. I prefer, when available in my garden, to use fresh ingredients and I would also toss in a sprig of rosemary (if I remember) in this mix..
These are basic ingredients for chicken or fish:
Blend 1 tsp kosher salt, 2 tsp minced garlic and 2 tsp dried parsley, 1 tsp each of dried thyme and tarragon. I would add some lemon or orange zest to this mix. Actually, I usually blend whatever I have available on my spice shelf, but I prefer the fresh herbs snipped in my garden.
Do you know why some recipes call for kosher salt and not iodized table salt?
