I found this spice blend in a food magazine years ago. I honestly can’t remember which one it was. I remember the recipe for sprinkling this tasty spice blend on salmon.

When I tasted it, I knew it was a keeper. So, of course, I had to reverse engineer the recipe, and now I keep a batch of this Mediterranean Seasoning Blend in my spice cabinet at all times.

Recipe Notes

The only thing to keep in mind when mixing up spice blends is to use the freshest spices you can find. I order most of my bulk spices from Mountain Rose Herbs (affiliate link) or World Spice Merchants. (not an affiliate, just a fan) Penzey’s (affiliate link) is another option for ordering bulk spices.

Spices that you’ll need

  • Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • Dried Oregano

  • Red Chili Flakes
  • Dried Cumin

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1: Make sure that you have an airtight container. This recipe makes about 1/3 of a cup of the spice blend. You’ll want to store it so you can use it regularly. Check out my Ultimate Guide to Seasoning Blends to see how I organize my spice rack.

Step 2: Measure out the herbs and spices and then mix them to blend.
