Santa Maria Seasoning
Updated: Jan 21, 2021
This is, hands down, my personal favorite seasoning. It is very much a West Coast barbecue influence with a perfect blend of salt, pepper, garlic, and onion with an herbaceous touch.
This seasoning can go on darn near anything! I use this for all proteins including beef, chicken, fish, eggs, and even vegetables such as asparagus. It is extremely versatile and absolutely amazing!
2 Tablespoons coarse salt
1 Tablespoon coarse black pepper
1 Tablespoon granulated garlic
1 Tablespoon granulated onion
½ Tablespoon smoked paprika
1 Teaspoon dry rosemary
Optional: ½ Teaspoon cayenne pepper
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and store in a cool dry place. This will stay good in an airtight container for 6 months. But, I doubt you’ll not be able to use it all quickly!
