Sweet Heat Cocoa Dry Rub

One of my favorite things about cooking is mixing and creating flavors. I’ve been digging this Sweet Heat Cocoa Rub that came about by tinkering with my longstanding BBQ rub. However, this one works great on fish (as pictured), roasted root vegies, and pork. I’ve sprinkled it dry and used it in marinades such as with soy sauce. I tripled the recipe below to make a small mason jar of rub. Enjoy!

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon paprika (smoked is better but regular is fine)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (your pref on heat)
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

This recipe is pretty simple when you have the Sweet Heat Cocoa Rub made.

4 tuna Steaks

½ cup soy sauce

2 squeezes of honey

2 tablespoons Sweet Heat Cocoa Rub

Simple mix the ingredients together and pour over tuna steaks. Grill tuna steaks to preference.

For the red potatoes, cut about 6-7 potatoes into small pieces. Sprinkle with olive oil and rub. Roast in over at 400 for 35-40 minutes
