This wet rub will provide a great garlic flavor that works well with any meat, poultry, or fish. This recipe calls for cayenne pepper, which can be reduced or omitted if necessary. For those who love spice, though, it really amps up this rub.

  • 1/3 cup/80 mL olive oil
  • 1/4 cup salt (coarse)
  • 6 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL cayenne pepper
  • 1 lemon (juiced and zested)
