Tasty Thursday – Fajitas BBQ Rub – For Chicken, Fish or Veggies

Happy Tasty Thursday!

Today we are going to make a dry rub from scratch. Throw away the processed store bought junk and make your very own, healthy rub. This recipe will make about a 1/2 cup so you can store the rest and use it for a quick meal.


Use 2 tbsp of spice rub mix to add to poultry or fish. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, 4 hours is better or overnight. I have used this rub without marinating and it still tasted great. You can also marinate and freeze your meat for 1-2 months.


To use this rub as a flavoured crust for searing and barbecuing, pat dry onto meat. To allow flavours to infuse better when marinating, use 1 tsp of oil per portion of meat.


For every 4 servings:

1 lb/500 g bonelesss meats/poultry or
1-1/2 lb/750 g bone0in meat/poultry or
1 lb/500 g fish

    Are those the “real” / “true” amounts of salt and pepper?

  2. Eve says:

    Are the measuring amounts correct for sea salt and black pepper? 1/4 cup seems like WAY too much to me?

    • Flavia says:

      Add them in slowly and use what you like. The rub should have a powerful punch to it. When you make it and see how much you get out of it, it will make more sense.

  3. Anna says:

    Hi Ladies, it doesn’t seem like that much to me. Flavia states in the recipe that this makes 4 servings.
