Mediterranean Dry Rub
Mediterranean people consume meats in small portions and when they do they prefer lean cuts. Poultry is an excellent choice when choosing a lean protein as it doesn't have the high levels of saturated fat found in most cuts of red meat. Fish and shellfish are very popular in this style of cuisine and are great sources of both low fat and high quality protein.
Herbs and spices are used liberally in preparing Mediterranean cuisine as they add aromas and flavors to foods, which reduces the need to add salt or additional fat when cooking.
Our salt free Mediterranean dry rub will give you a hint of the flavor of this exotic region and can be used as a dry rub or wet rub, as a dry rub we like to use 1 tbsp per pound of meat – usually chicken, fish or pork chops. As a wet rub combine 1 tbsp seasoning to ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil.
You can also sprinkle this on a Greek salad or on potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots or summer squash.
