Welcome to what may be the easiest and simplest post I have ever written! That said, this Homemade Seasoned Salt Recipe may just change your kitchen game forever. I kid you, not!
For that salty, spiced, and savory taste you find in many restaurant foods and from top chefs, you need your own blend of secret seasoning on hand. Well, mine is a secret- no more! I am giving you the coveted ingredient in many of my savory dishes- like Savory Grilled Chicken, and Grilled Corn on the Cob.
This is so good on all your savory dishes, and it's the perfect substitute for Seasoned Salt in any other recipe that calls for it. Think Lawry's or McCormick, but mine is so much better for you!
Many of the dishes I have posted in the past list all the ingredients one-by-one in the recipes. But if you have this seasoned salt sitting on the counter in a canister or seasoning jar, you can save a lot of measuring and time. For instance, try sprinkling it on my Easy Roasted Vegetables or on top of your Perfect Grilled Burgers.
Oh, and you can use this salty mix for preparing your Sous Vide items too! When you sous-vide food that is well seasoned, the flavor will infuse into the meat or veggies. YUM!
Why you'll love this recipe
- Grilling Perfection- It will be your new go-to grill seasoning.
- Super Simple-Make it in minutes with staple ingredients.
- Versatility-It is easy to change this recipe a bit here and there to suit your taste.
Everything here is really "key" to making the seasoning. However, I've listed a couple notes about the ingredients, and know that you can adjust amounts based on your preferences.
- Himalayan Salt - This is pink salt and is found in the grocery store among the others. Himalayan salt is a sea salt and has extra minerals and elements that table salt does not, overall it's a bit healthier, and more flavorful. You can use regular salt if you choose.
- Garlic Powder- you want garlic powder, not garlic salt.
- Smoked Paprika -has a smokey flavor to it that is wonderful. You can omit this or replace it with regular paprika if you like. Leaving it out will change the flavor profile.
Want to change it up a bit? Here are some suggestions!
Spice it up: If you like heat, add in some cayenne powder- just be careful and begin with a small amount and taste as you go. In my opinion it's a little less versatile that way.
Want a salt-free version?: Great! Simply omit the salt or reduce the amount to make it less salty! The choice is yours.
Some like it sweet: To add a bit of sweetness, you can start with 1 teaspoon of brown sugar (or brown swerve for a zero calorie option), and adjust to your desired taste. If you are using a sugar substitute, check the conversion chart on the package.
How to Make Homemade Seasoned Salt Recipe
This is an overview of the instructions, be sure to see the recipe card for all the details.
Like I said earlier, there isn't much to the steps when making this delicious flavor-enhancing homemade seasoning salt.
- Measure and place all ingredients into a bowl or container and stir until all spices are incorporated.
Yep, that is all there is to it! A simple solution to a delicious problem! Sprinkle the salty concoction on your meats, veggies, or anything else you would put salt on!
- Use fresh spices- spices do last a long time, however if they are too old they lack in flavor.
- An airtight container will help keep the mixture longer. I keep mine in a weck jar, but these jars with adjustable pour/shaker spouts is nice too!
- Try it on all your meats- season your steaks, other beef recipes, chicken, pork, and more!
- Add it to your veggies- This seasoning salt is a great way to add salt and spices in one shot to your vegetables.
- Sprinkle it on your eggs- Tired of the same old eggs for breakfast? Give them a new kick with this salt recipe.
- Popcorn anyone? Of course, you can add spice to popcorn with seasoning salt!
- The same goes for fries- Who wouldn't love seasoning salt on their french fries or sweet potato fries!
- Salad dressings- Olive oil, lemon juice, and a little seasoned salt, makes a simple but amazing homemade dressing.
There are so many more ways you can use this versatile and yummy seasoned salt recipe. Give it a try!
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes and no! Seasoning and Seasoned are the same- salt and spice blends. But Season-All is referring to McCormick’s Season-All which includes chili pepper in the blend.
Seasoned salt is a blend used to add to savory dishes. It has more depth of flavor than table salt. So, you can use it in savory dishes, but I would not substitute it for salt in your cake recipe.<3
Homemade Seasoning salt should last for 6 months to a year in an airtight container.
