This curry spice rub uses only five simple spices, but it’s so flavorful and a tad spicy! It’s delicious on chicken, salmon, shrimp, veggies and tofu.

I haven’t shared a spice blend recipe with you since my blackened seasoning! If you aren’t making your own spice blends yet, I highly suggest you start! They’re super simple to mix up and taste delicious on basically any protein.

If you think healthy eating is boring, it might because you aren’t seasoning your food enough (or at all!). This especially goes for protein. So many people I know just put a plain ol’ chicken breast on the grill without marinating it or adding any seasonings. Of course that will be boring because plain chicken is boring! Adding a spice blend or seasoning to your protein immediately elevates the flavors and transforms the dish.

Thai Curry Spice Blend Ingredients:

There’s a good chance you have all of these spices in your pantry!

  • curry powder
  • onion powder
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • sea salt
  • dried parsley

How to Use this Curry Spice Blend

One of the best things about using a spice blend instead of marinating is that you don’t have to remember to prep in advance. If I want to pre-season a protein for grilling, I’ll typically measure out all of the spices into a ziplock baggie, coat my protein with olive oil, add the protein to the spice mixture and shake it up! If I’m cooking something in a pan (like shrimp), I’ll just add the butter or oil as well as the seasoning blend and toss to coat. It’s so easy and instantly takes your protein to the next level.

This spice blend tastes amazing on so many things including chicken, salmon, shrimp and tofu! I can’t wait for you to try it.
