Favorite Blackened Rub

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by beckas

I took a rub recipe on here and tweaked it for a while until it it came out how I liked. My goal was to make a rub that I could generously apply to chicken, salmon, or steak that had great flavor and that was not too salty or spicy. This is our standby now and our favorite way to use is is to pat it on both sides of a salmon filet and then cook the salmon on the grill.

I used this on Flank Steak and only marinated it for 1/2 hour or so. I realize I don't like cumin flavor on my meat too much.
