Spice Mixture using Loomi Aswad

Here is a spice mixture that I have made and have been using now for about 12 years. It is excellent rubbed on chicken, beef and lamb roast and broiled salmon. After applying the spice mixture, it is best if you roast the meat, chicken, or fish.

Here’s the recipe. The quantities I give can easily be doubled or tripled and can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for another time.

1 tablespoon ground loomi aswad (ground black lemon powder)

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon of Garlic and Herb Seasoning (or you can use finely ground Oregano powder)

2 tablespoons Mexican Chili Seasoning

2-3 cloves of garlic, grated (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)

1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons salt

3 tabespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon vinegar or the juice of half a lemon

Mix all the ingredients together and you will have a nice thick paste.

You can now use this to rub on your chicken, beef, lamb, or salmon.
