Moroccan Paprika and Olive Oil Rub


Ingredients: Freshly Ground Paprika, Sea Salt, Olive Oil

The cuisine of Morocco is exotic with a complex, earthy flavor. Because Morocco was the hub of this region for centuries it has a well earned reputation as one of the most diversified cuisines in the world. Moroccan cuisine is a beautiful balance of Arab, Berber, Iberian, Jewish, Mediterranean African, Middle Eastern and Moorish influences.

Moroccan food makes extensive use of spices. There is an almost seamless convergence of both local spices and imported spices which have made their way into Morocco for thousands of years. Homegrown spices include lemons, olives, oranges and mints while frequently used imported spices include anise seed, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, ginger, paprika, parsley, pepper, sesame seeds and turmeric.

Eating in Morocco isn’t just practical it’s considered a social ritual. Cooks from the four great cities (Fez, Marrakech, Meknes and Rabat) shaped Moroccan cuisine and are responsible for its sophisticated rituals. Unlike in our country where dinner is the primary meal of the day in Morocco this designation falls to the midday meal (the exception is during the holy month of Ramadan) which takes center stage.

This midday meal is known for its large and plentiful servings. Bread accompanies each meal. These 5 course meals typically begin with a variety of cold and hot salads, next comes a serving of stew or tagine. The main dish follows and is frequently a chicken or lamb dish. Course #4 is a large plate of couscous that is topped with vegetables and meat. The final act is usually a sweet mint tea.

Our Moroccan Rub will bring your taste buds alive as it is loaded with flavors from this region. You’ll find a touch of sweetness balanced by some earthiness and some very subtle undertones of heat. Hand blended from smoked sweet paprika, cumin, salt, cinnamon, fennel, cayenne pepper, coriander, brown sugar and clove.

We’ve used this seasoning for everything from backyard grilling to creating an easy to prepare couscous dish topped with our favorite fresh vegetables and chicken.

This is a traditional paprika blend used in Moroccan food. This paprika has rich deep flavor and it's great to use in any recipe that calls for paprika. In Morocco, fresh chopped garlic is added to the blend and used in Tagins, Meatballs, fish or any tomato sauce based recipe.
