I have been making Essence of Emeril for years. I use 1 tablespoon of kosher salt instead of 1/4 cup of table salt and it is just perfect. All the other flavors season the food so well that you do not miss the salt at all. I use it to blacken catfish and as a dry rub for roasted baby back ribs (awesome)....everything....it is so good that I am often making new batches. MUCH cheaper than buying, that's for sure!!
