How to use NOMU RUBS

Rubbing with NOMU RUBS is a quick and easy way to add incredible flavour to your dishes. It couldn’t be easier or tastier!

Drizzle, sprinkle & rub

For a quick and easy flavour fix, simply drizzle your choice of meat, poultry, seafood or vegetables with olive or vegetable oil, sprinkle generously with your favourite NOMU RUB, then get your hands dirty and rub the flavour in. Cook immediately or leave to marinate before roasting, grilling, frying, simmering or sizzling over hot coals.

NOMU RUBS are also extremely versatile – try the Roast Rub on potato wedges or the Peri-Peri Rub on chicken pieces or the Garam Masala Rub on caramelised sweet potatoes or the Beef Rub on seared tuna or the Spanish Rub on prawns or the Poultry Rub on salmon… we could go on forever!

Wet marinades

For a quick and easy marinade, stir a tablespoon or two of your favourite NOMU RUB into Olive Oil and apply the mixture to your choice of meat or veg. Allow to marinade for at least an hour before cooking as desired. For an oriental glaze, combine NOMU Oriental Rub with soy sauce and oyster sauce.

For added flavour, try adding some of the following:

Zest and juice of a lemon or orange, garlic, chilli, Dijon mustard, extra salt, fresh herbs, apricot jam, honey, maple syrup, soy sauce.

Yoghurt marinades

Yoghurt or buttermilk works very well to break down proteins to help tenderise meat. Add the NOMU RUB of your choice to Greek yoghurt or buttermilk and marinade your meat for a minimum of 3 hours.

Firm favourites are Tandoori Rub and Indian Rub, but Lamb Rub for traditional Greek-style lamb is always a winner.

Flavoured butter

Butter adds a rich succulence and flavour to fish and shellfish and compliments their delicate flavour better than olive oil.

Use softened butter and place it in a bowl with your favourite NOMU RUB and mix well. Spread the mixture onto fish before frying, grilling or cooking over hot coals.

Also delicious rubbed under the skin of a whole chicken or chicken breasts before oven roasting!

Tips & Tricks

  1. If you do not want to get your hands dirty, place your meat in a zip-lock bag, add some olive oil and your chosen rub, squeeze most of the air out, seal well, then massage all the flavour in.
  2. Although most of our NOMU RUBS contain a small amount of salt, always check to see if your dish requires more seasoning.
  3. For an easy dipping sauce for prawns and fish, simply melt some butter, add a squeeze of lemon juice, a crushed garlic clove and a teaspoon of NOMU Seafood Rub.
  4. Also try making NOMU RUB flavoured butters to melt over hot food straight off the grill for an on-the-spot flavourful sauce. Simply stir your favourite NOMU RUB into softened butter. Shape into a log using cling film and place in the fridge to set, ready to slice when needed. Flavoured butters can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  5. You can also freeze meat after applying a rub – simply defrost and cook!
