This seasoning salt makes a nice change from the regular over-processed table salt. With a mix of spices and herbs, it takes just minutes to make and will enhance your cooking no end! Just make sure to use good quality sea, rock or kosher. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)
Note: For the best flavours, I recommend you use whole ingredients where you can. If you don't have them all to hand, just use pre-ground powders and reduce the amounts the recipe requires by half. For example, instead of 2 tablespoons of coriander seeds you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground coriander. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.
What You'll Need: (makes about 8-9 tablespoons)
8 tbsp sea, rock or kosher salt
2 tbsp coriander seeds (cilantro)
2 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp black peppercorns
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp dried chili flakes (or 1 tsp chili powder)
1 tsp whole cloves
tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon
Store your salt seasoning in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.
Note: If you have time, I recommend dry toasting the coriander, cumin, cloves and peppercorns prior to grinding. The heat releases fab flavours and aromas.
