Virgin Islands Spiced Salt Recipe

Preparation Instructions

Grind all the ingredients in a mortar or food processor and store in the refrigerator. Use to rub onto fish or steak before grilling, or over a chicken before roasting.

For a dry mix omit the garlic, onion, and parsley and add a crumbled, dried bay leaf and 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary to the blend. This will keep for 2-3 months in an airtight container.
