Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Cayenne Pepper Powder
Salt + Pepper

Does anybody else have any good ones?

To that you might also add dark brown sugar and make sure the pepper is fresh ground. Those peppercorn mixes can lend a different flavor too.

Here's one from Chef Tom Douglas, Seattle that is great for salmon!!


3 Tbsps firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tbsps paprika
2 tsps kosher salt
1 1/2 tsps freshly grd. black pepper
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme ( or 1/2 tsp. dried)

Combine the rub ingred.
Sprinkle fillets w/lemon juice
Coat either both or one side of each salmon fillet.
Roast at 375 - 400 to temp. of 140.

"4 oz. servings"

Serving Ideas : ----
The spice rub can be made a couple days ahead and stored, tightly covered, at room temp.
Good wine with the salmon - an Oregon Pinot Noir.
