Originating from the Basque region of France, the Espelette pepper is distinctively smoky, sweet and mildly hot. It brings stand-out flavour and vibrant colour to this zesty, Mediterranean-herbed rub. Use it to enhance the taste of grilled meats, burgers, vegetables, seafood and poultry.
Mix all the ingredients together in small bowl, until well blended. Store in a tightly covered jar, in a cool, dry place.
