Good morning and welcome to Coffee and Conversation #113 – hosted by PatAndCandy.com!
Need a quick and tasty dinner idea this week? Try this super-easy dry rub for poultry or fish, and the simple menu I used it in…
I find it so hard to believe that it’s only the end of September and I’m already singin’ the “Oh crud, is time to fix supper already?!” blues. Well, this happened to me a few days ago, and in UNcustomary fashion, I happened upon 2 opened and half-finished bags (yup, that’s how I roll sometimes) of frozen salmon slices in the freezer and decided to run with them.
Yet even though our family enjoys an occasional broiled salmon steak, I find that they need a little help in the flavor department now and again. So I reached into my newly cleaned out and organized (also uncharacteristic of me) spice cabinet and pulled out some ingredients for a simple rub.
I’m tellin’ ya, I’ve already confessed to not exactly using recipes by the book, but I don’t often come up with a mixture of spices that I’m proud enough of to share.
But I think you might want to try this one.
Please Pin and share if you like it, too! Thanks 😉
Savory Spice Dry Rub Recipe
This amount is good for approximately 6 pieces of salmon or chicken thighs and about 3 chicken breasts.
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp curry powder (a bit more if you like the zing)
- 1/2 tsp granulated ginger (but fresh grated ginger would be the bomb!)
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix well together in a bowl and rub on fish or poultry and broil (you could bake it, I suppose, but I’ve only broiled).
This is a great way to bring a quick, tasty meal to the table when you haven’t planned anything in advance. Salmon and chicken thighs both thaw fairly quickly.
I served this with baked sweet potatoes (which can be microwaved, too, did you know that?), and a green salad and mixed fruit (I combined cans of pineapple and mandarin oranges).

Tehila, from WomenAbiding, made quite the case for the spiritual benefit of not having so. much. stuff! I found this very convicting, even though I am far from being a pack rat…
Love the ideas and the links in this post over at ABountifulLove! I was especially intrigued by the posts she linked to regarding international travel with kids… Excuse me, but I may be here awhile!
I’m going through an odd season right now: as I age I’m realizing that I need to be a better advocate for myself, and yet I struggle with doing just that. Gah! Why are we humans so complicated? Anyway, Beth, from SweetlySparta, shared some simple and do-able ideas to help you (and me) start some better self-care habits.
Thank you all so much for your inspiration and timely words…
