My Favorite Spice Rub (amazing on meat and seafood!)

The BEST spice rub ever! Absolutely amazing on any meat and seafood! I even like to use it on veggies.

This spice rub is easy to throw together and is absolutely life changing on any and all meat and seafood!


  • 1/4 cup garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup onion powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground thyme
  • 1 tablespoon allspice
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper (1/2 tablespoon = 1 1/2 teaspoons if that’s easier for measuring)
  • 1/2 tablespoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Mix all spices together in a bowl and store to combine! Store in a jar or spice container.


This rub doesn’t contain salt, so make sure that when you use it, you salt your meat/seafood separately from the rub! I like adding the salt separately because I can control it more that way, otherwise the meat can easily be under/over salted.
