I attended a recent event where I got a chance to look at the entire line of products from Spice Islands. It is a great line.
Spice Island searches the world for spices and herbs of the highest quality. Then we craft and package them to deliver the most authentic and intense flavor possible. That’s why home chefs who have a taste for flavor adventure and everyday cooks who just want better tasting meals fill their pantries with Spice Islands®.
One of the best products of line is the rubs. I love that this rub is inspired by the spirit of the country. The Spice Islands Rosemary Garlic Blend is now one of my go to spices. I tried in on baked chicken and dinner was an instant hit. I also tried it in my homemade spaghetti sauce and it made it pop. I love garlic and this has the right balance of flavors. I strongly recommend this spice especially for poultry.
The Island Spice Rub tastes great rubbed on chicken. As the chicken is grilled, the aroma of the spice rub is incredible. Beyond chicken, this rub is great on pork and especially seafood. Below I have shown the Island Spice Rub on some tilapia with a pineapple and coconut salsa (recipe forthcoming!). Tilapia is a very mild fish, making it perfect for a seasoning like the Island Spice Rub. When grilling tilapia, make sure to oil the grill so the fish doesn’t stick. Also, cook on high for 8-10 minutes, or until the fish is nice and white. Gently remove the fish from the grill.
