Do you need to spice things up in the kitchen? I don’t know about you, but sometimes regular salt just doesn’t cut it, so it’s nice to have a recipe on hand that you can add to any dish that needs some additional flavor. I came up with this version of seasoned salt when I was tinkering around with rubs and BBQ sauce recipes. (SPOILER ALERT: I’ll also be sharing those recipes this week.)
A pinch packs a lot of flavor, so make a batch, keep it in an airtight container and you’ll have a secret weapon in your arsenal of flavors anytime you’re looking to shake things up. This is the perfect addition to burgers, salads, chicken, beef or even pork and fish. Why buy store bought products when you probably have all the ingredients in your spice rack already? Not to mention that it is super easy to make and can be easily packaged for a cute hostess gift or housewarming gifts.
A quick mixture of common spice rack seasonings make up this seasoned salt. Keep stored in an airtight container to add a little something different to everyday dishes.
- 1/4 cup sea salt
- 4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp cornstarch
- 1/8 tsp cumin
- 1/8 tsp curry powder
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
Mix all ingredients together until well combined.
Depending on the grind of the salt, you may choose to run through the food processor on pulse to break up some of the larger grains of salt.
Or using a sifter will separate the larger grains (recommended if you're going to use the seasoned salt in a shaker).
Store the remaining seasoned salt in an airtight container.
The seasoned salt is ready to use today, but all the flavors will mingle the longer it stored. Enjoy.
The best thing about seasoned salt, besides the added flavor, is that you can mix up whatever spices you like. Try it with turmeric, or maybe even some dried herbs. What flavors do you like? Let me know in the comments below and check back for my other recipes using this seasoned salt.
