Moroccan Spice Rub

Moroccan Spice Rub

January 16, 2020 0 By

This Moroccan spice rub is an earthy, sweet blend of cumin, cinnamon, anise, cloves, paprika, and chiles that’s reminiscent of ras el hanout and works so darn perfectly with roast chicken and salmon and pork and more. So much more.

Inspired by ras el hanout, the earthy sweet Moroccan spice rub used for centuries across North Africa, this combination of Moroccan spices and chile is sweetly earthy with its harmonic convergence of cumin, coriander, cinnamon, paprika, cloves, cayenne, aniseed, and more. It may look like a laundry list of ingredients yet it’s so worth it to make a batch and keep a stash on as a potion to reach for on a wacky weeknight when there’s no time to waste. For starters, let it work its considerable magic on a simple roast chicken.Renee Schettler
