pantry staples: town hall spice rub

July 23rd, 2012 | Posted by admin in PANTRY STAPLES

Spice rubs are a common trademark to many chefs.  I love a bit of heat so this mixture works well for me since it’s basic starter is cayenne pepper.  I keep the mixture in an airtight container and use it over several weeks.  You can change spices or add different ingredients.  I add a bit more celery salt and cumin to this rub.  I use it on meat, fish, chicken, and in sauces.  Enjoy this or make your own specialty rub!



• 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
• 1 ½ teaspoons paprika
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon white pepper
• 1 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 teaspoon onion powder
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• ½ teaspoon dried thyme
• ½ teaspoon dried oregano
• ½ teaspoon ground cumin
• ½ teaspoon ground coriander
• ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
• ⅛ teaspoon celery salt



• Mix together all the ingredients until well combined.

• Store in an airtight container in a cool cupboard.  The mixture will keep for up to 6 months.
