It’s barbecue season, and I’ve been raving about this barbecue rub that comes courtesy of Jamie Oliver.
I tried it rubbed into chicken a couple of days ago and it’s beautiful – smoky, sweet and fragrant. It’s also incredibly easy to make.
Here’s what you need:
2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
Zest of one orange
1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely grated
Salt and black pepper.
Basically, crush your fennel seeds and black pepper in a pestle and mortar, mix it with the rest (and some oil if you want) and then rub it on your pork, chicken or beef. Put it on a griddle pan or a hot grill for a few minutes and it will blow you away. Try it and see if you don’t believe me.
