Homemade Thai Seasoning is flavorful and easy to make. Prepare a huge batch and keep in the pantry for months!
Thai Seasoning from scratch might be easier than you think! A handful of ingredients with the essence of lime and coconut, will be a homemade seasoning blend you’ll want to put on everything- Thai or not!
Making your own seasoning blends is so easy and can pack much more flavor per teaspoon than store bought blends. You can control the salt also the heat, catering to your palate. Thai Seasoning is one I keep around and use on many occassions.
Thai seasoning can be combined with vegetable oil or coconut milk for a quick wet marinade for chicken or shrimp. You can use it as a dry rub for steak and seafood and even sprinkle it on roasted vegetables. I also use my Thai Seasoning in Thai Shrimp with Glass Noodles.
I do recommend that you invest in a cheap spice or coffee grinder. It will make the process of making any spice blend, including curry powders, so much easier. Clean them easily by grinding dry rice. For dry spice mixes, I recommend using dried lime leaves instead of fresh.
