African Spice Rub


African spice makes a great rub for either chicken or pork.  Tonight I am rubbing this paste all over some chicken breasts before cooking them on the grill.  You can marinate the meat covered and chilled for up to 4 hours.

African Spice Paste


8  dried hot red chilies

2 tablespoons coriander seeds

1 tablespoon cumin seeds

1 tablespoon caraway seeds

2 tablespoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon black peppercorns

2 teaspoons kosher salt

5 tablespoons olive oil



Coarsely grind chilies, spice seeds, garlic, and peppercorns in grinder or with mortar and pestle, then stir together with salt and oil in a bowl to form a spice paste.
