Moroccan Spice Rub, also known as ‘ras el hanout’, really means “top shelf” or the best spices in the shop.

Having said that, no two Moroccan Spice Rubs are the same. I’m not sure if this version would be considered authentic, but it is my version and I have used it both on chicken and lamb. If you use the quantities in the recipe, you will find that you will have enough for maybe 2 or 3 applications, but not to worry, it keeps well in a jar with a tight fitting lid.
