This flavorful Moroccan-inspired wet seasoning rub works perfectly on most meats and grilled vegetables. Try it on lamb chops, kebabs of any kind, and grilled eggplant.  

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup parsley (chopped)
  • 2 to 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ginger (fresh and minced)
  • 2 teaspoons salt (coarse)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container and refrigerate. Mixture will keep for up to 5 days if stored properly.
  3. If using on meat, apply a good amount and let marinate in refrigerator. For beef, lamb, and pork, marinate for 4 to 12 hours. For poultry, marinate for 2 to 4 hours.
