This is a continuation of my tour through my Spice Cabinet. This one is a pretty generic blend of seasoning that can be used in all kids of dishes. It is easy, pull it out and sprinkle it on your protein and eat away.

This is so easy for a simple pan seared or grilled dish. And great on potatoes, rice, pasta, and vegetables as well.

**There are some ingredients in the list that may not be found in your grocery store. However, they can easily be ordered off Amazon for a decent price. They are good staple to have as you start enjoying building your own spice mixtures.

Store the extra spices in an air-tight container or ziplock bag with the extra air removed.

Fish / Chicken Salt Mix (makes about ½ cup)

  • 4 TBS kosher salt
  • 1 TBS fresh ground black pepper
  • 1.5 TBS lemon or orange peel/zest
  • 1 TBS freeze dried ginger** or ginger powder
  • 1 TBS granulated garlic
  • 2 TBS dried minced onion (or 1 TBS granulated onion powder)
  • 2 TBS freeze dried bell pepper**
  • 1 TBS freeze-dried celery leaves/stalks** (or .5 TBS celery seed)
  • 1 TBS dried parsley

Put all into a food processor and blend until any large chunks are broken down.

If you don’t have a food processor you can use a blender, pestle and mortar or just use as is.

To use, just sprinkle on and cook as usual. Also good to mix with sour cream or yogurt (and let rest in the fridge for 1 – 2 hours) to make a easy flavorful dip.
