Salmon Seasoning - Add a Delicious
Lemony Peppery Flavour to Your Fish

The grill is fired up, your lovely piece of fish is just waiting and all you need now is a salmon seasoning that will add fab flavours and aromas to your soon to be grilled salmon. And this super easy-to-make recipe, with its blend of paprika, pepper and lemon, amongst others, is just the thing... (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my recipes)

What You'll Need: (makes about 5-6 tablespoons)

3 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tbsp black peppercorns
2 tbsp dried lemon peel
1 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tsp paprika powder
2 tsp dill seeds
1 tsp salt (see note 2)

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the coriander, cumin and dill seeds, peppercorns, dried lemon peel and salt
  • Once ground add to a bowl
  • Finally, add the paprika powder to the bowl and combine well

That's all there is to it!

Store your salmon spices in an airtight container in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months before making more.

Note: Dry toasting the coriander, peppercorns and cumin seeds before grinding is worth considering. This simple process only takes minutes and really enhances the flavours and aromas which will be added to your salmon. Click here for tips and photos of how to do it. (Link opens in new window)

Note 2: You could use any salt for this fish seasoning recipe. However, I do recommend using one of good quality: sea/rock/kosher/flakes for example as these are a bit less processed and I think add better flavours to your mixes and blends. If however you only have regular table salt available, it's fine to use that (as I sometimes do), you'll still get a fab tasting powder.

Ingredient Note:
 I mainly use whole spices in this salmon seasoning as they give the best flavours. But if you don't have them all just substitute with pre-ground powders and cut down the amounts you use by about half. For example instead of 2 tablespoons of whole peppercorns you would use 1 tablespoon of pre-ground black pepper. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well and stir in with any other powders when making.
