Rubs and Marinades

Rubs and Marinades

    My first attempt to use rubs on meat back in the sixties came from eating some filets of rock cod that were seasoned and blackened in a hot cast iron skillet. The filets were flash fried and had a real hit of flavors. I found the origins of this eastern Spicy Rub had a great Canadian History brought there by the Acadians from Nova Scotia.

Remove after marinating and place onto a roast pan. Season the skin with salt...
