Cuban Sazon

I love Cuban seasonings. Some of the ingredients for making them are difficult to find here in the Canadian Rockies so I have developed my best representation of them with ingredients I can get.

As a result of the substitutions, it isn’t authentic but is an homage to the great flavour profile of Cuban cooking.

I just mixed the following together:

  • 7.5 ml (1 1/2 teaspoon) (5.6 grams) garlic powder
  • 4 ml (3/4 teaspoon) (3.1 grams) onion powder
  • 4 ml (3/4 teaspoon) (4.8 grams) Kosher salt
  • 4 ml (3/4 teaspoon) (0.6 grams) dried oregano
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) (1.5 grams) black pepper
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) (1.5 grams) cumin
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) (1.8 grams) tumeric
  • 1.5 ml (1/4 teaspoon) (0.2 grams) dried parsley

Store it in an airtight container and use it as a seasoning or rub for chicken, pork or fish!

The Verdict

I really like the lower salt with onion and garlic being the big flavours. The tumeric gives a nice yellow colour to the finished dish. Try it!
