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 the 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 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons fish sauce (or substitute 2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce)
2 tablespoons shallots or purple onion, finely minced
1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
Stir, then taste-test, adding more fish/soy sauce if not salty enough, or more sugar or spice if desired. Enjoy.
