Spicy Paprika Rub

Which rub to use depends on the food you're preparing. The heartier the food, the stronger the rub should be. A piquant rub, such as this one made with paprika and other spices, is a good match for rich-tasting salmon.

  • 4 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice


  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients. Because of paprika's strong taste, this rub is best paired with fattier foods, including salmon, skirt steak, pork loin, and whole chicken.
