I'm on a salt restricted diet, so can't use the prepared seasoning mixes. I did this one with 1/2 the salt for blackened chicken alfredo. Wonderful. Thanks

A wonderful spice mix! I made 1/4 of a batch and will mix up more as I need. I skipped the salt (didn't need it), also didn't have any dried chives and used only black peppercorn, fresh ground instead of cracked. I will try to find some dried chives next time. It was fabulous on shrimp. Thank you for the recipe!

This seasoning mix was pretty good. Followed instructions with measurements exactly. I for some reason could not find the chives in the spice rack,pantry and cupboard. Major suggestion is to cut back on the salt to 1- 11/2 teaspoons. Two teaspoons is way to much and turned out very salty! Unless you like thinks to salty do not change a thing.
