Blackened Spice Rub Recipe

Blackened Spice Rub


This rub creates a beautiful crust for fried fish, grilled chicken, and seared steak. Use it as a base for smoked meats or add to other sauces and marinades for a flavor boost. We like to combine it with hot sauce and butter for a twist on traditional Buffalo wing sauce.


  • 3 tablespoons dried thyme
  • 3 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic granules
  • 1 tablespoon Aleppo pepper
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt


  1. Place all ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk until evenly combined, being sure to break up any clumps. Store in an airtight container up to 3 months.
  2. Cook’s Tip:
  3. Substitute hot smoked pimentón for smoked paprika to give this rub a fiery kick!
