Ingredient Note: For the dry rub recipes above, I generally advise using whole spices when and where you can. However, sometimes you may not have them all available. If that is the case, just use pre-ground powders, and halve the amount the recipe requires by half. e.g 4 tablespoons of cumin seeds would equal 2 tablespoons of pre-ground cumin. Reduce any other ingredients you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
You may have a trusted method. If so, carry on with that...
...Liberally cover your fish or meat, or even vegetables, with the blend and massage it in using your fingers.
Cover and place in your refrigerator for at least an hour. A few hours is better, overnight is even more so.
An hour or so before cooking time, take out of the refrigerator and let it return to room temperature. Cook according to your recipe.
