Sazon - A Flavour-Packed Blend of Salt and
Herbs and Spices For Tastier Home Cooking

If like me you're a fan of seasoned salt, then sazon is the recipe for you! And making your own is a really simple thing to do. As well as being a nice addition to your condiments, this lightly spiced blend of sea, kosher or rock salt plus a few herbs and spices will season and flavour your home cookied dishes wonderfully! (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 6-7 tablespoons)

5 tbsp salt (see note below)
2 tbsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp annatto seeds (optional)
1 tbsp paprika powder
1 tbsp garlic powder
4 tsp black peppercorns
4 tsp dried oregano

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • In your grinder, coarsely grind the salt, peppercorns, coriander, cumin and, if using, the annatto seeds
  • Add to a bowl 
  • Stir in the garlic and paprika powders
  • Finally, crumble in the dried oregano and combine thoroughly

Store your seasoned salt in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight and in a cool place. Use within 3 months before making a fresh amount.

Note: Dry toasting the peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds before cooling, grinding and combining with the other ingredients is well worthwhile as this will release more of their fab flavours. Click here for step-by-step tips and a video on how to toast and grind ingredients.

Note 2: You can use processed table salt for this sazon recipe and it'll still taste fab, but as you've gone to the effort of making your own I recommend using a quality sea, rock or kosher salt. Not only is it healthier, it will definitely taste better!

Ingredient Note: For the best flavours, I recommend you use a few whole spices if you can. If you don't have them to hand, just use pre-ground powders and reduce the quantities the recipe requires by half. For exampl, for 2 tablespoons of coriander you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making your sazon.
