Have you ever wanted to make your own seasoned salt because you need something without additives? I searched for an all purpose seasoning that had a better kind of salt in it. There are good ones out there, but they can be expensive. So I made my own version, adding in kelp for natural iodine. The basic recipe follows. 5/30/2018 - Edit to add: For those of you who like to weigh ingredients, I have added the gram weights.
Basic Seasoned Salt
3 Tbsp. (125 g) salt (we use Real Salt)
2 Tbsp. (35 g) paprika
2 Tbsp. kelp granules OR 1 Tbsp. (15 g) kelp powder
½ Tbsp. (10 g) granulated onion
½ Tbsp. (15 g) granulated garlic
dash red pepper, optional
dash green or (tiny) dash white stevia powder, optional
Mix and store in airtight container. An empty spice container works well.
“Spike” Style Seasoning
I came up with a version of “Spike” seasoning that we like. Make the above seasoned salt recipe first. Add in any or all of the following in very small amounts at first, adding more as you see that your family likes it. I add many of these to make this a “greener” salt that is very versatile. We use it in cooking, on popcorn, at the table. We hardly ever use just plain salt when we have this around. In fact, I don’t even have a plain salt shaker!
1 batch Basic Seasoned Salt recipe, set aside
Other additions* as desired –generally about 1/8 tsp. to 1 tsp. each (Put these in your blender to make them into a powder that will mix well with your basic seasoned salt recipe.) Store finished seasoning into an airtight container.
*I have used all or a combination of the following:
^ Can be fortified (has B12) or non-fortified (contains no synthetic vitamins) , *not* baking yeast
This seasoning can be used in place of the salt listed in my Portabella Grill Marinade or other savory recipes.
