This homemade spice rub is much healthier than any grocery store fish seasoning. I like to make my own spice blends because they use fresh, all-natural ingredients and don’t have to worry about adding preservatives, artificial flavors, or additives like monosodium glutamate (MSG). .

It is recommended to store fish seasoning out of direct sunlight and heat.
