Salmon Seasoning

salmon seasoning

Made with smoked paprika, garlic powder, and other spices, this salmon seasoning will take your fish from boring to delicious in no time!


  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika or paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ichimi togarashi
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Put all the ingredients in a spice grinder and grind until smooth.
  2. Transfer the seasoning to an airtight jar and store somewhere dark and cool for up to 4 months.

To season salmon: rub the fish with olive oil and sprinkle some seasoning on top, or on both sides if you are using skinless fillets.

  • Bake in the oven at 400ºF for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Or broil it for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Or grill it until desired doneness.

I don’t recommend pan frying salmon with this type of seasoning since the seasoning burns quickly.


Store this salmon seasoning in an airtight container or jar and keep it in a cool, dark place, for up to 4 months.
