Yummy and quick! I loved this on my baked haddock. Usually I just bake the haddock with olive oil salt and pepper. This was a nice change! I cut the salt and pepper in half because it just looked like way too much! I omitted the lemon because I didn't have any and it was really tasty! Pros: Healthy Cons: Calls for way too much salt and pepper in my opinion Read More

Make sure to use California grown garlic in this recipe! The imported varieties lack the freshness and flavor that California garlic has. Great recipe! Amber Long Beach CA Read More

I made this a few months ago and my boyfriend and I loved it. I used it on boneless chicken breasts and I was quite satisfied. I just served it with Ramen. =D Grilled chicken and Ramen is an awesome meal when you're young and broke. WS Newport OR Read More

This rub would have been great if I'd cut the salt by about 1/2. I doubled the recipe and let the chicken breasts absorb the rub overnight. All my guests (save my Dad who would salt a salt block because it wasn't salty enough) that ate the chicken the next day agreed it was great but to definitely cut down on the salt next time.

This was wonderful and so simple. I used it on Bone-in Chicken Thighs and the flavor was right on. I thought the Rub would be overwhelming with 8 cloves of garlic but it was not and I rubbed it on the chicken about 10 minutes before grilling. I will be sure to use this on other cuts of meat and vegetables like the recipe recommends. Yum. Michael Vancouver BC Read More

I used this rub on grilled steak. I was afraid it might be too salty because of what a previous reviewer said but surprisingly it was fine. I still think I might cut down on the salt though because I would like to taste the garlic and lemon more. Read More
