Ben’s Best Fish Rub

Living in the Pacific NW with access to lots of fresh, local seafood can be wonderful. . . if you like fish. My husband loves fish, and I kind of loathe it. However, I still make an effort to eat it because it’s: wild caught, local, sustainable, healthy. So I’m delighted any time I find a way to prepare fish that makes it really delicious!

My brother, Ben, is an excellent cook. He’s also a master of the Big Green Egg, and his tailgate parties are legendary. He lives near Puget Sound and spends a lot of time crabbing, fishing for salmon, and spear fishing. He served me some grilled salmon with this rub recently and it was so good I went back for seconds! Try this on all kinds of seafood, and it would probably be good on chicken or pork as well.
