Moroccan and Tunesian flavors in this rub. Use on poultry, lamb, beef or pork, two to three hours at room temperature before grilling is the normal way of using this paste. It has strong spicy flavors and I prefer to use it mixed with yogurt or buttermilk, for marinating or basting.
If you have roasted garlic paste use that instead of the garlic cloves, use 1 tablespoon.
The original recipe used three tablespoons of salt, too salty for our tastes but feel free to add more salt or even reduce it to less.
This will keep in the fridge for up to six months.
