Tuna steak dry rub

Discussion in 'Other' started by wasp, Oct 17, 2014.

  1. Hi from Australia
    Does anyone have a good dry rub for some prime tuna steaks
    They will be cold smoked only in a controlled environment
    I have done salmon with a couple of dry rubs and works fine (tastes fantastic) so should I use same method
    Any help will be great

    Sorry I just seen this if you had good results with the Salmon I would do same with Tuna maybe go a small amount in case it doesn't turn out. Good luck and let us know.

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

  3. Tuna is a more robust fish than salmon, and can better stand up to herbs, spices, and other aromatics. Take a look at my current thread on Zanzibar Tuna, for an example. The flavorings there can easily be used as a dry rub for smoking purposes.

    Here is the dry cure I've used in the past for  stronger fish:

    2 lb salt

    1 lb dark brown sugar

    2 tbls saltpeter

    2 tbls garlic powder

    2 tbls crushed cloves

    2 tbls onion powder

    2 tbls crushed bay leaves

    2 tbls crushed allspice

    2 bls crushed mace.
