Serve Seafood Seasoning Mix with your next Shrimp Boil, or over any seafood.

In my years of baking and cooking, I have made many DIY seasonings and mixes. You can usually count on two things when you make your own: it will be less expensive and more tasty.

Instructions for Making this Recipe

Making this seasoning mix is quite easy. In a small bowl, combine the celery seed, sea salt, peppercorn melange, paprika, lemon pepper, allspice, crushed red pepper flakes, and oregano. Mix well. Using a funnel, transfer the mix to an airtight jar. Shake to mix thoroughly. Place lid on the jar to seal and store until until ready to use. You may store this seasoning mix for up to six months.
