Blackened Catfish Rub (actually Blackened Anything Rub)
Try this recipe. I use it on everything.
You will probably need to double it to cover a turkey. I've used it when I've fried them. It's really a "blackening" spice mix I started mixing up around 20yrs ago when you couldn't just find this type of stuff at the grocery store.
1 T. sweet paprika
1 1/4 T salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp whole thyme leaves, finely chopped (if dried, crush)
3/4 tsp whole basil leaves, finely chopped (if dried, crush)
***FOR OUR RECIPE WE ONLY USE 1 HEAPING TSP SALT***
Mix together and store in a lidded jar.
