Cooking flavorful dishes is always a rewarding experience! It’s a easy reason to bring friends and family together.
In my ‘Spice it Up Rub It Down’ e-cookbook, it’ll take you through various recipes using either the Nola Creole Rub, Ancho-Chile BBQ Rub, or my Citrus Herb Rub. Today, we are talking all things BBQ. As we all know, it’s summertime! The grills are out and everyone is cooking outdoors. The Ancho-Chile BBQ rub contributes well to cooking outdoors, but this particular recipe can be used for brunch or even dinner indoors.
The sweet potato and lobster hash has been known to be a crowd pleaser. It’s an easy recipe for any skill leveled cook to execute for their family and friends. Sweet potatoes sautéed with onions, peppers, garlic, mushrooms, and a flavor BBQ rub. Let’s not forget the sweetness of the lobster to make this dish well rounded.

In a separate pan, sauté mushrooms with 2 tbs. of olive oil. Season with pepper. Once caramelized, season with salt.
