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
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.

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.
