Substitute with a dash of herbs.
Try this blend on poached, grilled or baked fish, either before or after cooking. Use a light hand to avoid overwhelming delicate fish flavors.
As you combine the ingredients, crumble or chop them to the consistency that you want. Store extras in tightly covered jars in a dark place to preserve their flavor for as long as possible. For use at the table, keep the blends in salt shakers with large holes; blends made with whole spices may be kept in pepper mills.
