Fennel-Chile Rub
Toast 1/4 cup whole fennel seeds and 1/4 cup whole black peppercorns in a medium skillet over medium-high until seeds begin to pop, 1-2 minutes; let cool slightly. Working in batches, transfer to a spice grinder and pulse until coarsest ground. Mix with 1/2 cup crushed red chile flakes in a bowl and then transfer to an airtight container.
