Homemade Salt Seasoning Mix

This blend makes a tasty change from the usual processed table salt you may use. With a blend of rock/sea salt and various herbs and spices, it only takes minutes to make and will season your food perfectly and add fabulous flavours.

Makes about 10 tbsp

8 tbsp sea, rock or kosher salt (or any other variety)
2 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp dried rosemary
1 tbsp black peppercorns
4 tsp dried basil
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp chili powder (hot or mild)
2 tsp paprika powder
1 tsp mustard powder
5-6 dried bay leaves

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Crumble the bay leaves

  • Coarsely grind the salt, rosemary, bay pieces, peppercorns, coriander and cumin seeds

  • Once ground, add to a bowl

  • Stir in the chili, paprika and mustard powders

  • Finally, crumble in the dried basil. Combine thoroughly

That's all there is to it!

Store in an airtight container out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: You could dry toast the peppercorns, cumin and coriander seeds prior to grinding and combining. This will add even more flavours to your recipe.

See the toasting and grinding info down the page for tips on this recommended, easy to do cooking process.

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
