How to Season Fish

What is the best seasoning for fish is a common customer question. Narrowing it down to the type of fish you plan on serving is the first thing before we can talk about how to season fish.

Best Seasoning for Fish Steaks

Meatier fish options like swordfish and salmon can take a heartier fish seasoning without overbearing its flavor. The Olde Town Spice Shoppe proprietary Alaskan Salmon Seasoning is a great place to start. The blend of paprika, herbs, spices and salt enhance the fish. We recommend sprinkling it on the salmon fillet, topping it off with some lemon slices, and wrapping it in foil before placing it on the grill. This blend definitely is a customer favorite.

Fish Seasoning for Lighter, Fish Fillets

Lighter fish, like tilapia, require a lighter fish seasoning such as Fish Herb Seasoning as not to overshadow the fish. The seasoning is ground more finely, the flavors are more delicate. You will see dill, kelp, marjoram, and other spices help the fish taste shine. Known to be the best seasoning for fish, don't forget to add it to your bread crumb or cornmeal for a great fry coating.
