Combine the ingredients in a small bowl.
Coat the poultry, meat, or seafood with the olive oil. Sprinkle with the rub, pressing gently to help it adhere to the food.
Cook on a lightly oiled grill to the desired doneness. Note: Try this rub when grilling boneless chicken breasts, turkey cutlets, skirt steak, lamb chops, shrimp, and striped bass.
