Recipe by Demelza

I just came across this in a cookbook, so have not tried it yet. I did not see anything like it on the site so decided to share. You can use this with pork chops, chicken, fish or veggies (broccoli & cauliflower). I am posting the recipe as it is in the book, but think I will cut the salt in half for sure. You can add some parmesan cheese to this as well. Store it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months.
