“This is a rub to use on fish prior to grilling or smoking. Recipe from Steven Raichlen's How to Grill cookbook. He says feel free to use different kinds of sugars such as white, turbinado or maple sugar instead of brown. He also says you can add any additional herb or spice you may fancy. Use 3/4 cup of rub per pound of fish.”
