Z, you might want to try that copycat recipe for a lower salt version, say with 2Tb. of salt instead of 1/3 Cup, and celery seed instead of celery salt.

You're kidding, right? Would you expect seasoned SALT to be low in salt?

I'm sure Zhizara meant that seasoned salts are disproportionately high in salt, more seasoning needed. For anyone with salt sensitive blood pressure, they cannot find a commercial seasoned salt that fits into their parameters of desired salt intake.

I feel that you are right. Read the label and Salt is always the first ingredient listed. Why not. It is the cheapest seasoning for the company to use. Creating your own in accordance with your dietary needs is definitely the way to go.

Penzeys has some pretty good salt-free seasoning blends. I like Mural of Flavor (although I do add salt to it) and a lot of people like Sunny Paris (it's a salt-free version of Fox Point).

I've never used Lawry's at home, are either of those a good flavor profile similar to Lawry's?

I have both Mural of Flavor and Sunny Paris, but since I don't have Lawry's I don't know if they are a close flavor match.

I don't know. I've never used Lawry's, either.

Here is a clone list of ingredients:



2 tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons white sugar
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch

I would only use half the salt, leave out the sugar and cornstarch.

According to the copy cat recipe, I'd say the flavor profile would be quite different for Lawry's, compared to Mural of Flavor or Sunny Paris.
I've no need to make the recipe but I really like Lawry's SS.

Just stepping aside from salt for a moment, do you use or have you ever used Lawry's garlic spread? The conch fritter recipe I make uses it. I also used to use it half and half with butter for garlic bread, but stopped as Karen doesn't like it.
