Spice Blends How to Make Seasoned Salt
How to make SEASONED SALT. Making your own Spice Blends puts you in the driver’s seat. Learn how to make homemade seasoned salt and add a little spice to your life
Hands down, this is my FAVORITE combination of spices to make seasoned salt. Its a blend of herbs and spices that’s fantastic on fish and shrimp (I use it as a blackening spice) pork and especially chicken. This spice blend is the key to my fried chicken recipe.
Mixing up your own house seasoning means you no longer have to measure out5 or 6 different herbs and spices while you’re cooking. It’s been a real time saver for me, I just grab a jar of this and season to my heart’s content. Use this as a steak or rib rub as well, it’s good on EVERYTHING. Sprinkle a bit on sliced zucchini with a drizzle of oil and grill it up for a tasty vegetarian treat.
Once you make a batch of the seasoning test it to see if it’s to your liking. You may want to increase or decrease the salt levels to fit your taste. Same goes for the cayenne pepper. Increase, decrease, or omit it depending on how hot you like your food.
Make a big batch
I use this seasoning nearly every day so I mix up a big batch of seasoned salt and keep it right on the counter within arm’s reach. Be sure to keep the mixture in an airtight container or it will clump in the jar.
Give the gift of good taste and give jars of this tasty seasoning blend to your friends and family as holiday gifts.
