Looking for a good bbq rub that's also easy to make and healthy too? Try this Thai Barbecue Rub! Similar to a traditional Texas dry rub, except I find this Asian-inspired bbq rub to be even better, due to the extra spices and flavors. Turmeric gives the meat a beautiful color, while garlic and cayenne spice things up. Works with all kinds of meat, including fish, chicken, and bbq ribs. Make up a large batch and store it in a jar on your countertop, and this simple but tasty bbq rub will keep you going all summer long!
Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl or cup.
Sprinkle over the chicken, fish, ribs, or other meat you intend to barbecue. Press or rub the powder into the flesh.Tip: For extra moistness: Drizzle a tablespoon or two of vegetable oil over the meat first, slathering it evenly over surface. Then add the barbecue rub, pressing or rubbing it into the flesh or skin.
Barbecue/grill the meat or fish until cooked.
If desired, serve with this simple no-cook Thai sauce spooned over (or used as a dipping sauce). Just stir together:
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. fish sauce (or substitute 2.5 Tbsp. soy sauce)
2 Tbsp. shallots or purple onion, finely minced
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Stir, then taste-test, adding more fish/soy sauce if not salty enough, or more sugar or spice if desired. ENJOY!
