Make a Spicy Rub for meats. In order for a rub to really work it must contain salt. A natural property of salt is that it draws out liquids. When your rub contains salt and you leave it on a meat surface the salty rub will draw out the meats juices and then by osmosis will draw the flavour back into the meat. This also means that for a rub to work it must remain on the meat surface for some time. Since none of our blends contain salt so you can add our Paradise New Zealand Solar Harvested Sea Salt from Lake Grassmere, south of Marlborough Sounds, to the Cajun Blend to suit your taste.
