Low Sodium Lawry’s Seasoned Salt Recipe

Low Sodium Lawry’s Seasoned Salt Recipe

While at the grocery store this afternoon I refreshed my bottle of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. As I’m in the process of trying to switch to salt substitutes however, I figured I’d try and come up with a recipe for a homemade version of Lawry’s which uses a salt substitute. Traditional Lawry’s contains 380 grams of sodium per 1/4 tsp, or about 16% RDA.

The Lawry’s bottle lists the following ingredients: Salt, sugar, spices (including paprika, and turmeric), onion, cornstarch, and garlic.

There are a number of recipes on the net for making Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. Well, actually there’s one recipe which is on several sites:

  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • I figure that if you substitute the salt in the above recipe with either Cardia or Nu-Salt sodium substitutes, I’ll get all the yummy taste of Lawry’s without the sodium.

    1. I’ll be waiting to hear how it tastes.

    2. Yeah, me too. Lawry’s is good stuff. Another recipe I’d like is for the seasoning salt the put on Potato Ole’s. I’d swear it’s some lawry’s derivative but I have no idea. All I know is, it’s heaven on a fried potato crisp.

    3. I agree with you Mike, it tastes very similiar to Lawry’s. That is what I put on my fries, and potato crisp’s at home.

    4. Okay, so my recollection of the potato ole seasoning isn’t the best. IIRC however, I think it is saltier than Lawry’s, not as sweet, and has a little bit more kick.

      The recipe sites don’t seem to have a good approximation for it, but they have some suggestions:

      1 part ground cumin
      2 parts paprika
      4 parts Lawry’s Seasoned Salt

      or

      2 teaspoons paprika
      2 teaspoons ground coriander
      1 tablespoon granulated sugar
      2 tablespoons seasoning salt
      1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
      1/8 teaspoon hot salt

      One poster says the Potato Ole seasoning tastes more like Season-All McCormick which I haven’t tried but which apparently contains Chili Pepper, Black Pepper, Celery Seed, Nutmeg and Coriander, Onion, Paprika, Sugar and Garlic.

      Those of you that have better access to Taco Juans are going to have to try and figure this one out, but the Lawry’s plus paprika and cumin would seem to be the best shot. Maybe a little red pepper?

    5. Makes me hungry for them right now with Cheese sauce!

    6. They don’t make the Lawry’s Red Pepper Seasoned Salt anymore……… anyone have the recipe for that? Thanks!

    7. why do they put sugar into Lawrys?

    8. I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO MAKE LAWRYS RED PEPPER SEASONED SALT SURE MISS IT !!! ANYONE KNOW HOW TO DO THAT ONE??
      THANKS!

    9. Thanks for the Lawrys seasoned salt recipe.
      Having high blood pressure I thought all was lost. I substituted the sugar with splenderd because of my diabetes, I used the morton salt substitute,added all the other ingredients… now I’m back in business! Thanks again!!!!!
