Wow, this combination is unexpectedly delicious! I first came across the Coffee and Spiced Rub on Drizzle and Dip, and thought to myself that my tastebuds would be delighted with that. They were. I adjusted the recipe to use up some of the jars and jars of dried citrus powder I had made, which just adds an extra level of flavour, and a touch of zing. You can use try fresh citrus zest instead, if you don’t have dried citrus powder, or leave it out.
The Coffee Citrus Spice Rub can be used on barbecue meats and fish, with salmon being our favourite.
Coffee Citrus Spice Rub
enough to cover meat or fish for 4 people
- 2 tbsp brown or rapadura sugar
- 2 tsp ground coffee
- 1 tsp whole black peppercorns
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp dried ground citrus peel (or 2 tsp lemon or lime zest)
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp chipotle chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Put all ingredients into a food mill & grind until powdered. (If you do not have a food processor or food mill, use 1/2 tsp ground pepper instead of peppercorns, and mix all spices together in a food or jar).
- Use as a dry rub on meat and fish. For salmon fillets, I coat the whole piece of fish with the spice rub.
- It is also known as Cowboy Spice Mix.
