Angie’s Dry Seasoning for Chicken, Meat, Pork and Seafood
Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes, my own dry seasoning. I have been cooking since I was a little girl. It is not a burden for me, but rather a time to relax, be creative and forget about the stress of the day. The one thing that I learned early on in my life was that food tastes better when is seasoned well. That is the reason why I am bold when it comes to marinates, seasonings and salad dressing, among other things. I occasionally use salt and pepper but that is on filet mignon and grill steaks. This is one of my favorite seasoning combinations. Enjoy it.
In a glass jar with a lid mix the following spices:
1 tsp. ground pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. sweet paprika
1 tsp. ground dry rosemary
1 tsp. dry thyme
1 tsp. dry oregano
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
½ tsp. chili powder
½ tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. chopped dry basil leaves
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. kosher salt
How to use it with Chicken, Meat, Pork and Seafood:
Clean well removing all visible fat and pat dry with paper towel.
Move to a glass container, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and rub well with my dry rub.
