Moroccan Spice Rub

November 30th, 2009

This is a recipe that Shayne has adapted from the “Joy of Cooking” book. It is our absolutely favourite rub for lamb. Fantastic for either leg of lamb or frenched rack.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 minced garlic cloves 

Mix all ingredients in an small bowl. Coat meal well on all sides. Let the meat marinate for 30-60 min.

Makes enough for 1 large rack of lamb. Double the recipe for leg of lamb.
