We take it as universal truth that everyone wishes for simplicity in the kitchen. Call us lazy, but even the most seasoned cooks among us have balked at a pages-long recipe calling for handfuls of aromatics and countless freshly ground spices.

Enter Laguna Salt Co.’s all-purpose sea salt blend, crafted with the help of neighboring restaurant chefs and gourmet food retailers in California, and appropriately nicknamed “The Kitchen.”

You’re probably wondering: What’s in a one-jar-fits-all seasoning? A lot of the same things you’d find at a professional cook’s kitchen station: sea salt and black pepper, garlic, onion, paprika, celery (in this case, celery seed, which has a much mellower flavor), even lemon.

Universality is the spice of life!

You’d be right to take “use on everything!” with a grain of salt (sorry, we had to). But this balanced blend’s a no-brainer as a rub on roast game hens or grilled swordfish steaks. We’ve also been known to sprinkle a pinch over oven-baked french fries or freshly popped popcorn, cheesy omelets and fresh green salads.

Sea salt, garlic, celery seed, onion, paprika, lemon, pepper. Comes in a 2.5 oz jar.
