Basque Inspired Rub with Espelette Pepper

Hot off the plancha

With origins in Spain, France’s Basque region and Mexico, the plancha is a thick, flat slab of cast iron known to impart a sizzling, smoky sear and flavor crust. This style of grilling may be used with meats, enhanced with a vibrant Spanish green sauce with cumin, cilantro, parsley and green chilies, or a zesty, Mediterranean herb rub starring France’s espelette pepper, described as smoky and sweet with a mild heat.
