Dry rubs impart a lot of flavor to your food. Most times they are used for when you grill meats. But, you can use them to season when cooking inside. You can also use them on vegetables.
Jerk is a type of Jamaican style cooking. Very flavorful and also very spicy hot. It is normally a marinade, but not this time.

You will need a small jar with a lid.

2 teaspoons ground coriander
