What is Seasoned Salt?
Also called seasoning salt, it is the perfect all-purpose spice blend to keep on your dining room table and near your stovetop to grab and shake when you want to enhance the flavor of any number of savory dishes.
This wildly popular spice blend sells more than $100 million a year in the U.S.. And its popularity has also crossed the ocean where in the UK it’s known as Chip Spice (sprinkled on fish and chips) and was created in the city of Hull, inspired by its American cousin. Australia likewise has its own version known as Chicken Salt (used for seasoning rotisserie chicken).
Seasoned salt is the standard seasoning used in take-away food shops, street vendor carts, fish and chip shops, and any place selling foods such as French fries, fried or rotisserie chicken, and deep-fried seafood.
It’s widely available in grocery stores but as with most commercial products contains fillers, anti-caking ingredients and sometimes MSG.
This homemade seasoned salt is not only free from any junk ingredients, it’s flavors a bigger, bolder and more vibrant. We’ll show you how to make seasoned salt and are confident you’ll be sold once you try it. There’s simply no reason to ever use store-bought again!
Seasoned Salt Recipe
Let’s make some homemade seasoned salt!
To make this simply place all of the ingredients in a coffee or spice grinder or small blender and pulse until finely ground. It’s essential that the ingredients are ground finely in order to pour out of the shaker in an even ratio.
I’ve been using my KRUPS coffee/spice grinder for a decade and it’s still going strong.
Store your spice blend in an airtight jar and a dark, cool place. It will keep for a few months.
