Magic Spice Blend: The most versatile spice blend that I have in my cupboard and I sprinkle it liberally on salmon, haddock, shrimp, chicken, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, zucchini, sweet potato... Magic spice blend goes with everything.

Back when we were in university my twin brother and I enjoyed an overnight visit with family friends who had just moved to a town near our school. It was right after exams and we were looking forward to cozy beds and a home cooked meal. Andrea was known to be a great cook and we sat down to our curry dinner with much anticipation. The fragrance was amazing but my palate wasn’t accustomed to extra spicy food so I couldn’t taste a thing. My mouth was on fire the entire meal. (Thankfully we had ice cream for dessert.)

Every once in a while I wonder what that meal would taste like if my palate was as tuned to spice then as it is now.

This spice rub has a little heat but nothing like that curry from long ago. If you do like extra heat it is easy to amp it up if you want a bit more of a bite.

I usually triple the recipe so I always have lots on hand. It also makes a great gift, packaged in a pretty bottle with the recipe fastened with a ribbon.

The recipe can be made without smoked paprika but the flavour is so much better when there is a little smokiness.
