Rustic Rub

Rustic Rub

Rustic Rub is my favorite!

This Rustic Rub recipe is amazing to use on pretty much any protein.  I’ve used it for delicious results on poultry, beef, pork and fish, and it’s just as good on vegetarian and vegan proteins.

It is a little spicy, but not crazy spicy, so you can really kick up the flavor of your favorite protein source depending on how much you use.

When it comes to adopting and maintaining a healthy diet, one of the most important things that you can do is to properly season your food.

When you properly season, that seasoning becomes the substitute for other things that you would normally use like sugar and excessive salt.

When it comes to flavor, we are particularly in love with Emeril’s Rustic Rub, and I use it on pretty much everything, it’s just that good!

I searched for a place for you to buy it directly, but couldn’t find it to share with you.  But the good news is I found the recipe on the Food Network site.

Thank you Chef Emeril Lagasse for this delicious goodness!

Check out this delish Grilled Tilapia with Pico de Gallo recipe where I used this yummy spiciness.

Bon Appetit!
